Default D3V3LOP3R's '00 GS400 Build

Hey everyone!
New to ClubLexus, just got a 2000 GS400 White with Tan interior Platinum edition. Planning to do plenty of stuff to it in the next year so I figured I'd make a build thread

Here are my before pictures:

Nothing like a clean slate to start with. What do you have planned?

Just bought a set of Work Varianza W4S wheels and spacers, once I get them on I'll post more pictures! After that probably will be getting coilovers to drop it a bit. New grill, headlights, taillights (maybe). Might get a new bumper and re-paint the car later this year. The actual factory paint on it is in great condition except for some chips on the front of the car. Going to redo the seats eventually as well. Super excited.

Been quite a while since I updated this! The wheels have gone on and they look fantastic...might get them refinished sooner or later, but they are in rather good condition (still xD). Been working on mechanical stuff before making it pretty...I've always figured it's good to have a car that runs and looks decent rather than a car that looks dope and can't go anywhere.

Currently about to get the power steering pump and lines done along with the coolant reservoir. I get parts at cost so it's going to be about 1k + labor. Gotta do it though!
Won't be making any BIG purchases until I have that stuff done. I'll get wheel pictures up soon when she is cleaner

UPDATE TIME!
Been pretty busy working on her recently, so I thought that it is about time I update this thread. Some new stuff that has happened since the before pictures...

1. She is now riding on some UAS bags on KYB struts
2. Baby Bear Gangster Grille in gloss black
3. Work Varianza W4S wheels mounted with NITTO NT555s wrapped around them. Rear is 19 x 9.5 +45 and front is 19 x 8.5 +42

Future stuff:
Some custom headlights are coming in from japan in the next few weeks, can not wait to get those on....
I got JDM window visors, I'm going to paint them black or have them tinted almost all the way black and then get them on.
Need to work on my fitment a bit, still trying to work out some kinks in the air system so this should be fun

Here is the wheel pic I have been promising..

I appreciate it homie! Good luck trying to find that grille! I was told that there might only be 2-3 stateside if that...I might be wrong, but I haven't seen any others other than on Mutu's GS in Thailand.

Yeah I just thought that. I think I'm going to try and fabricate something similar.

Keep up the good work!
