Default AtlasLS400- 97 Lexus LS400 Coach Edition Build

I wanted to start this thread to put all my mods in one space instead of doing a new thread for everything I do.... This is how I purchased the car from the auction.3k. First thing I did was drop about 1, 500 under the hood. Timing, all mounts, crankshaft seals, tune up, spark plug wires and new power steering pump. Oh... I almost forgot, I also romoved about 10 dings on the body. It came with those wheels too.

After all the maintenance was caught up I painted the bottom to make the car all black. Also painted the grill black.

Here it is with the new springs... 1" all around. These were a really great install. I was able to keep the comfort of the ride and remove some of that fender gap. I was also able to keep my 245s tires without any problems.

For 20 bucks, I picked up these puddle lights to give it a try. Love them. I thought they might look tacky but they turned out really nice and everyone that sees them thinks they're cool.

Honestly, if it weren't for this post, I would've thought you got those previous wheels on purpose lol. More on topic though, when you do get around to doing the tables, definitely take some pictures of the install. I, for one, would love some information on how to do this (this is a mod I'm kind of planning as well). Also, you may want to get that wood refinished since it's looking a tad worn out. In fact, you could probably have it finished to match the Lexus burl

Received my tables this weekend. These are 95-97 Jaguar Vanden Plas picnic tables. Ordered from ebay: $130 shipped. Tables are in really great shape and the leather trim matches up perfectly. The wood finish isn't an EXACT match, only just a shade darker. You have to get up on it to see a difference. A great find.

The install was a no brainer; 4 screws and a level. The tables look really good when closed, it fills in that space perfectly.
