Today I tined the windshield of my gs with clear ceramic tint. It has a little bit of a blue tint to it. Keeps out heat and UV rays.

Continued the restoration of my 99 GS400 by swapping out a weak belt tensioner, Transmission Mount, that I did myself and motor mount which I paid a friend to do.

Holy cow what a huge difference in refinement !!!! Prior to replacing the parts the car ran very well. Some slight vibration at idle as if I needed a tune up but nothing to be concered about. I did have the delayed acceleration issue on a few occassions when I punched it, but I thought that was normal.

After the fix the car accelerates more much smoother and no longer has the rough downshift into a lower gears when I punch it (Like a neutral rev then drop into drive). ZERO vibration at Idle and it feels like it has more powa!

I know this has been said before, If you have over 100K miles just change out your motor and transmission mount. I used oem ones from Sewell Lexus. The motor mounts appeared to look OK but when they were out I could easily split them in half.

New Timing belt, water pump, front crank and cam seals, oil change. Also polished my headlights with the 3m kit, they look much better but not perfect.
