It's not *my* GS, but it is a 2GS.

Wet sanded and buffed the headlights:

Changed spark plugs, cleaned maf sensor and thottle body and finished up the fog light mod. Not a bad way to spend the day working on the car. Thanks to all the DIYs here!

As I explained in other threads, I got my GS back from my wife about 2 months ago, (after buying her a GX470) The weather is finally relaxing, and so it all starts.
I took out the sub-woofer, used 'subwoofer fix kit', and re foamed the torn area.
Followed this link and it was all good:

Few things left to do, before I do any 'FUN' modifications.
(door lock fix, aux/bluetooth install)

Washed inside and out, cleaned the engine bay, changed the license plate bulbs, and switched the rusty lexus plate frames back to the original Lexus of Rockville dealer plate frames. Getting the calipers painted with decals and spark plugs and valve cover gaskets on tuesday, switching back to the summer tires on thursday.

Buffed the foggy headlights and fading rear spoiler (both look really good and the headlights look pretty much new again) and whole car, also installed new LBJs and outer tie rods, along with new cabin filter, air filter, spark plugs and oil change. Next up is timing belt water pump kit and thermostat/coolant flush, drive belt change and motor/tranny mounts! (Just have to install later this week)

Changed out the famous ball joints, tie-rod ends, caster arms (I didn't want to screw with having to take the bushings out, just replaced the whole arm) and just got done with the alignment.

People, if your front end feels loose, rattles, tires howl, and car's handling isn't what it once was, don't screw around, change your caster arms/bushings and ball joints/tie rods.

I didn't even know about our cars front suspension issues, until I accidentally ran across member's ball joint failure post... I had all the 'issues', that fixed all of it and now the car feels like brand new again.

Now, looking at Grom kits, need to replace the rear door actuators, blah blah blah.... lol.
