Default Blue is the new black (2008 Lexus IS350 transformation)

Day I picked up the car. Bone stock & no tints.



A week later, 17% tints.



Lowered.



Added the OEM gfx rear and fronts, exhaust/intake etc.




Small mishap... an ISF kissed me...


A month later, all fixed up and good! With a new ISF rep bumper.



Got a new OEM flatbottom wheel!


New F Sport wheels.





Some local meet.





Decided to get some +15mm spacers.


In the shop for some work, namely molded wald!

wow nice IS-F conversion. Could you give us a little more detail? DId you use the stock ISF hood or did you have to shorten the fenders

Very nice! Is that OEM USB paint or custom?

Ya the bumper is a rep fiberglass ISF bumper.

Colour is not USB, it's the liquid blue pearl... the same colour used on the LFA.

I was gonna go USB too but I ended up with the LFA blue pearl as I liked the pearl and darker blue more.

I edited the mod list to reflect this, I was gonna go for the OEM front, but if it breaks you can't fix it like FRP.

everything flows together really nicely.

I see that you mention the fenders and side-skirts are FRP too; are they a direct bolt onto the 2IS, or did they require modification to fit onto the regular 2IS? Can you give us more information about where you got them?

Wow I thought the black version was great...then the blue version appeared and totally dominated. Love the front, sides, rear, spoiler, brakes, kinda everything. I never liked those wheels....until I saw it on your car. Works really well together.
