1994 ls400
just under 200,000 2 owners before oldman and son
Very well maintained but coming up on the age of replacements and updates.

This is my daily car and i drive my wife and 1yr old around all the time so i cant go too crazy!

Going for a combo of a bunch of styles. Bozo, shakotan, oni kyan, bippu

Current mods:
BC coils not hitting tower (yet)
SC430 wheels and 215-35-18's
RCR's
Clear corners
Curtains F&R
Fusa
K&N
6K HID's
LED's in everything

Future mods:
New wheels and tires are shipping as i write this
Replace all PS parts
front and rear arm replacement
exhaust
intake
new motor with cams
5speed (maybe havent decided)

Is that spoiler from spoilerking? I got one too, how was the install? Seems you gotta heat it first and then stick it on.

Yes it is.
I parked my car in the garage and painters taped the spoiler in place and let it set for about 6hrs. (kinda slef mold i guess, this will work when its above 70 too.
Then i replaced the sticky with new stonger sticky.
start from the middle and work your way out when applying. the ends im still having issues with cause they want to flare but a couple of little dabs of gel supper glue seems to help.

Is there a reason you didn't do the "keep in box with a heat gun" way and what stronger sticky stuff did you get? i was thinkin of maybe using an expoxy but paranoid I won't be able to take it off down the road if I want to

JavBez- fronts are on for now. these are imported from japan for a 2nd gen. Rears i have cut up and am modifing to fit.
color code? i did know at one point but i forget.

TMAdash1- go to lowes and look for the double sticky with the lb. rating. no need for epoxy or anything crazy. the spoiler does not form the best a heat gun will help.





Thanks for the comments.
