LS400 Calipers have arrived..I opted to get rebuilt calipers...Rotors and pads should be here by the weekend.....Hint...Hint....These will look good in gold....

The LS400 Calipers are a lot bigger in person than I thought....Which is a good thing because I need the extra stopping power now...

Received the decals from Tabaka..Thanks again.....They are about 4" long



I purchased a new hardware kit for the calipers...What are the 4 clips for in the bottom of the pic...Do they go on the brake pads....

Test fit with the BBS LM reps 18x10 +25 on 275/35/18......Once I get coils it should give me a little bit of negative camber.... Should be pretty flush then..





I am trying to decide which color to go with.....Sandstone beige is a hard color to get wheels for I am limited to either Silver or Black....trying to decide which to go with...

Got the brakes mounted up and brake lines mounted to calipers...Just awaiting rotors and pads to get here today...

Pics with Lexus decal added:







Will up date later today once UPS delivers rotors and pads..

Looks good. On my calipers when I was done with paint and applied the sticker, I then applied a bunch of thin coats of clear so the stickers have something over them protecting them as well. It did create a small amount of orange peal adding the clear, but I think it'll help longevity. Anyhow just a thought for ya to consider, looks great though.
