One set of 1157 LED's came in the mail.


Going to use these for the Turn Signals & Reverse lights. I also ordered a set of Red 1157's so im going to try both in the taillights to see which ones i like most. Here is a old pik of how they looked on the old gs. They flashed twice as fast and had a brighter color. I liked it.

Going to pick up my tranny core and hopefully the Aristo door sills will be here by next week along with a few more things. Then I will start collecting parts for the motor build.

Looks like a good start man. I'm doing similar but just working on what's needed now. My struts are shot, rotors warped, and exhaust clogged. So that's next. Soon as I can find a dang wheel key to remove the lock nuts! My Lexus dealer won't sell me one nor tell me what kind it is!

Are you doing the interior lights too? IE the instrument panel? Their type 74 aren't they? I need to change a few of mine out.

I was going to do the Supra TT brakes but don't have the $$$ for 17" wheels yet.

Ahh I got ya. Yea I have a white LED kit. Cluster, AC/heat console etc. pretty much everything except the shifter plate cause I won't be needing that. Lol. If you can't do the tt brakes you can always go for the Ls400 brakes. It's just as good if not equal.

I'm still here. Been sick and handling business. I've been waiting on this place to get a motor. So hopefully in a week or so so we can get the move on.
