I bought coilovers on the black friday group buy a week before I even owned the car lol. I was that sure I was going to get her




Been riding around lowered on the stock X-package wheels every since

From this point ive just been racking up parts, jumping on deals when i can. just a sample of whats too come. hopefully i can get everything on and painted within the next couple weeks

came up on a set of SSR Professor from a friend here thats huge lexus enthusiast as well. they needed some TLC but nothing that couldnt be handled


shortly after this is how they turned out, fully polished outer lips and faces, the inner barrels were brushed



Was lucky enough to come up on an LX Mode grill from a CL member and an authentic Vertex front lip and side skirts from another(dont mind the bumper from my mr2 project and the spare 350 eng cover lol)





I also had ISF interior trim but had to learn the hard way that 09+ interior trim doesnt work in 06-08 IS's lol

Your LS was clean, but I do understand why you upgraded! Looks like it's going to be a really clean IS build!
Keep the updates coming, looking forward to seeing this build play out.

Kinda off topic but, judging by your screen name I take it that you've owned or own a MR2? *Former MR2 owner as well.*
