Back at it Again!

Well, after almost a year of unsuccessful car hunting, and the realization of other priorities, I decided to work on what I already have.
This time, things will be different.

Here's a little "work in progress" teaser to get things started:



A lot of things to be done for her until she's show ready. Bought and installed a lot of the parts all at once in the past couple weeks, but these projects never end.

And back to the present time..........

Just put together a 2012 F Sport front end conversion (I have a 2009 IS), and now toying around with ride height and a few other adjustments to get my fitment and rear in check

Before fitting the new front end:

I know, it was fun for a bit!
Side skirt extensions are carbon fiber from AIT Racing

Thank you! Yes I experience quite a few vibrations, and wobble while accelerating but I have gotten used to it.

Small update:
Rear fenders rolled... now my wheels can fit flush and proper.

With how bad the roads are here, riding static is something I have to deal with as this is my daily driver... starting to think more and more about bags (?)

Got a picture with a GSF at a local Lexus meet

bags are so much more convenient but don't have the same stability as coils. some days I miss my coils but I just air out and get over it, haha.

Thanks man! Yeah the one condition for me to build this again, was to do something about the boring front end haha.

I'm trying to find a suitable air piston or cup kit... basically the best of both worlds! Problem is that the AWD chassis isn't too popular with many of these companies..
