Default B16da9's IS350 build

I never really did one of these for my old 6MT IS250. However back in Feb. of this year she met her untimely death do to road debris instantly blowing out my right rear tire causing me to spin out on the highway hitting the guardrail twice. Needless to say the car ended up being totaled and a month later I purchased the 2011 IS350 bellow with less than 5k miles on the odometer.

First some pictures of my old IS250 6MT

Thanks guys, I hope to have my wheels this weekend. However before i put them on I need to do the fender tab and paint the calipers. I was also thinking of having all four corners rolled so I dont butcher my fenders like I did on the 250.

Well I got my wheels back and I have to thank the Strassforged guys for getting these looking new once again. This weekend I'll be doing the bumper tab and heating up my fender liners.


Wheels have new lips and barrels

I love what you're doing to your new IS. There aren't a lot of body kits for the 2011+ models yet so I'm watching your build closely before I start on mine

Keep up the amazing work

I thought about doing the centers gold so the integra and IS would match as I would like to take both of them to meets together.
