Default Snyperifle's Build Thread

Hey CL, my name is Calvin, 20 years old and live in Sugar Land, Texas. I wanted to share what I've done with my car so far and have a place where I can keep a record of how much money I've wasted .

My previous car, a 2008 Accord Coupe V6 auto w/ Navi



I've had her exactly a year now, (July 2012) a 2008 IS250 in Smokey Granite Mica.





Very first thing I did... Change all the dash and window switch LED's to blue (didn't do that great of a job and never bothered to fixed the broken ones since haha). Probably shouldn't have done this first...



Changed my exterior lights, 6000k lowbeams and 8000k fogs



Picked up the M2 Exhaust and a week later did a resonator delete. Check out my Youtube Channel for sound clips as well as other mods I've done




Changed the exterior lights and Plastidipped the grille surround + rear emblems
Nokya Arctic White low beams, Nokya Hyper Yellow lowbeams, Nokya Hyper Yellow highbeams



I also did the foglight mod



Hardwired my Radar Detector into the mirror as well as made a dumb looking mount but it works lool



Installed blue footwell lights with IJDMToy Music Box, as well as blue puddle lights


Come around December I lowered her on Hotchkis Springs as well as built a tow hook licence plate holder







Then I put on some XXR 527 in Gold. Rolled and Pulled the rear fenders but still rub a bit over dips and when there are passengers





Got my headlight and foglight housings painted satin black
Also switched my lowbeams to 8000k HIDs



Sold my M2 Exhaust and installed an electronic exhaust cutout


Then took a little leap and plastidipped her Tiffany Blue. Also put on Wald rep Front Lip and Trunk Spoiler. Also some random roof spoiler I don't know what brand. Also some GFX Exhaust Tips





Also installed a Hide-Away License Plate Holder but it rubs on stuff as I'm driving and the paint is almost gone on it xD




I thought these pics look nice

Plastidipped my interior trim pieces white and asked my friends to decorate it however they wanted with sharpies











That's how she sits right now!

Looks like a good start and way to detail the process. However, just my opinion, but I don't care for the interior but the exterior is unique. You need black side skirts to match your front lip now.

Everyone has their own way of customizing their car. Lots of work, but I am not a fan. No disrespect!

Of course! When I do non conservative colors I know that many people aren't going to like it lol.
