Default IS220d in VIP progress vol.2

Some of You will remeber my car and transformation from this:

to this:




I was looking to sell it... but after long battle with myself I decide to push this car bit more...
This is what I want to do:
- 2012 oem LED headlights
- JDM oem Lexus daytime running led and HID fog light kit
- New front grill
- LX Mode door handle covers
- widening front fenders and reshape them into VIP style
- widening rear fenders to fit wider wheels
- more negative camber
- some chrome details
- new rear bumper spoiler
- new wheels
- upgrade air system, (2 new chrome air compressors, maybe managment system )
- full show off trunk setup
- upgrade standard system to navi
- upgrade sound system
- changing colour of interior

thats in short list haha

so I start from some small shopping:





New wheels are on the way from jap, also have to order new inner and outer barrels..
But before Im gona do it, body work have to be done. Rear fenders will be extended by 2inches.. that mean door have to me cutted as well...



Becouse I dont know much about welding, my friend will be doing that, but all finish after will be done by myself... so already order all stuff needed:

Wow. Looking forward to end results on that rear widening!

Glad you decided to keep the car and go big too!

Door like a rear wheelarch will be cuted and new piece welded, as You see new panel that not only arch, but cover door as well. Next step is to cut door line and then cut main panels, replaced with new and then matched all missing areas with steel
