Default Patrick's LS400 Project.

So since I was in high school, I always wanted a big bodied Lexus or Q45 but never had the money to afford one. Now at the age of 22 I had an option of building another Honda or being the first in the city with a Vip inspired car.

Here is my first Honda (07 Civic Si)


Picked this up for 1000 bucks (I feel i could of bought something better lol). 94 Ls400



First thing to do was to clean the bay as best as I can.



I definitely was in need of some seat as we see here lol


So I picked up a set of brown seats at the junk yard for 60 bucks but my interior is gray so I can no choice but to paint em lol


Picked Up some Bumper Lights for cheap


Rear seats Had to go too so I picked up another set for cheap and painted them the same color as the fronts

Your the second person to paint the seats seats. I never knew this was even an option. What did you use and whats the long term durability of said product? How do they feel?

I used duplicolor vinyl & fabric paint. Make sure u clean the seats then 3 coats should do. It's very durable and still has that leather feel to it just make sure you use some leather conditioner

I painted these seats in October and they still look mint. I remember my friend painted his whole interior black from tan in his vw cabrio and even thru the summer with the top down in the sun during 90+ degree weather they still held up great.
