Like I said the front still needs some adjustment, it's not pushed in enough. The rear canards look fine to me, I don't know what kind of adjustment can be done to make it fit better.

They're the soft rubbery mouldings that go on the sides of your roof. Some ppl just do the roof top and purchase black mouldings from the dealer or seawell.

Yea, carbon fiber roof will definitely stand out if you want to be different, I'm getting older so the CF theme is just not my stuff anymore, I used to put carbon fiber all over my E36 M3 inside and out. I don't mind having the same mods as the others, as long as it looks good. People going for the same mods as you did obviously have the same taste as you do, so anything that looks good will likely to be "played out" sooner or later, I wouldn't go for something else less appealing just to be unique. I'm glad to be in the Lexus community where most people have really good taste!

Looks like this could be the "next red out mod" huh? More and more members seem to be getting this done. It's really starting to grow on me. Nice job and it looks glossy too. hmmmm thinking

Hope your car will be out of the shop soon! Definitely not too much fun driving that microwave around. Is it Jon or John ? He was doing a some body graphics on a EVO but since I could leave the car with him for the whole day, he was able to do both cars at the same time. Too bad you weren't able to make it on Sunday, let me know if you're going to a meet next time, I'll be there!

I love the black roofs on light colored cars. I would definitely do that to my car if it wasn't black. By the way, is your headlight housing blacked out? If so, did Promax do that for you. I would like to get that done.

No my headlights are not blacked out. I think they look dark enough on white cars, plus I don't want to mess with my headlights by putting them into an oven like I did to the IS300 that I owned.
