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

That bumper looks to have the 09+ 2is grill... I thought this was OEM F front??

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.
