**It's going to be a long read, but I wanted my build thread to be more of an intro/portfolio. I hope to have help some of you somehow in the near future**
Well...if you came in here looking for pictures of my USB IS350 you are out of luck. I've been biting my tongue and holding back from making this read, but I couldn't take it anymore!!!
I placed the order in November 2013 and I have been anxiously waiting for it's arrival. It's currently at sea and should be in my possession at the end of the month...literally the LONGEST
During my wait, I was told that I may be the first USB RWD to be sold in BC (one of the first in Canada for sure). In fact only 1 RWD (Ultra White) was sold in BC to my knowledge. I suppose due to the weather, AWD is more desirable. This has no relevance but it's nice to be unique for the time being. This is going to be a popular car!
IS350 with all bells and whistles
I would like to give a big thanks to Shaddix for all his help and advice. I hope to meet some of you.
A Little About Me...
I have no experience with Lexus. In fact, I only test drove the AWD version (no RWD available to drive), I didn't even see the colour in person. I was close to purchasing a 1IS or 2IS, but I'm happy I held out. This will be my first automatic car, I am so excited.
My world is Honda's, specifically s2000s (my dream car). I have an s2000 that I have built ground up in my garage for 5+ years that I want to share and served as a good learning tool. I learned how to take it all apart and put it back together, first oil change, and the most complicated achievement was boosting it. I learned how to drive fast on the track and how easy it is to damage.
Here are some pictures.

Some track days
New shoes, I may test fit them on the IS
Some working photos, took the interior apart, painted the cage and installed
After a long wait, I was one of the very few to own this bumper besides race cars in Japan...Voltex Circuit

PS. If you have any s2000 questions I am more than happy to answer them.
