Default My IS-F Rear End Conversion - Full Photo Guide

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:
------
$320
------

Bodyshop Painting:
------
$240
------

2x Exhaust Tips
2x Reflectors
2x Towhook Covers
2x Lower retainer brackets
-------------------------
$520
-------------------------


Here are the pictures from start to finish.



Test fitting to make sure bumper will fit before placing order for the most expensive parts.

That looks awesome! You should put a good sounding exhaust on it though to match the looks

Awesome pictures

But I have to agree with Idrinor, quad exhausts with stock IS250 sound doesn't make sense IMO. time to kill your wallet, again. :P

I'd feel better about it if the car was a 350 but either way I'm torn.
Props for scratching the mod bug itch. The work looks nicely done.
On the other hand, I not really crazy about this design even on an ISF! Faux stacked tails seem not cool to me.

A for effort though!

for those of you who have beamers, just think of it as an "M style" mod. i don't see him as posing because he didn't put the IS-F emblems on it, its still got his 250 on it. its just to make it more aggressive looking OEM style

awesome props for tackling it, fitament looks great
