For those who are not aware, I have been planning my IS-F Rear conversion for some time now. Full details are on this original thread
I have successfully completed the project
and all installation photos and DIY guide are provided below.
Firstly, i would like to thank everyone on this forum who advised me throughout my planning. A special huge thanks goes to Joe Z and Javier for the expert advice.
The total cost of this conversion including the charges for painting the bumper at a bodyshop was $1,080
. I purchased all the parts except the bumper from Lexus Japan and hence made quite a saving.
The exact cost breakdown is:
Bumper Cover with Parking Sensor Holes:
2x Exhaust Tips
2x Towhook Covers
2x Lower retainer brackets
Here are the pictures from start to finish.
Test fitting to make sure bumper will fit before placing order for the most expensive parts.
The OEM IS-F Tips and Reflectors:
