Nice work.

Did you cover the front emblem with carbon fiber wrap? Def a unique look.

My grill is painted black to match my lower grill and the trim piece was wrapped in matte black. the oval portion is wrapped in CF but looks naked so I have a Lexus emblem being painted black and that will sit on top to finish the look.

The OEM fog lights are coming out next to get modified for LED driving lights and that will finish my front end. Planning to do the IS-F rear exhaust tips and AIMGEN bumper next.

Size? you mean the thread? I just know this came off my 99 GS400 and was an "Aristo" part I had saved from over the years.



Lots more pictures coming soon as I get the car lowered and putting new wheels on the car!


thanks!

Are those front lip protectors for the CT or are they generic?

Love the roof...but how does it affect the heat inside the car? I see you're from Cali and that's why I'm asking...it's also because of this heatwave that we're having this weekend too.

Not sure that the exterior color of the car would affect the inside that much? Are you thinking people in white cars keep cooler than those that drive black cars?

I can tell you from personal experience that wrapping the roof in dark colors does NOT affect interior temps. My last car was white as you can see and the CF wrap made it really easy to keep it clean!

One of the reasons I wrapped the CT roof is because right where my windshield glass meets the roof, there was paint chips from rocks I never thought of doing the edge of my roof sadly when I did the clear bra film. So the black roof wrap protects the paint nicely and gives the car a more aggressive sport appearance.
