Default NguMinh Build Thread

Hello fellow 2IS owners. My name is Minh and I recently got a 2007 GFM IS250 in January. I use to own a 2003 GGP IS300 and loved her a lot. Hopefully, I'll fall in love with this girl too.

My IS300.

This past weekend
Me and a couple of friends(socal35 and Blkexcoupe) helped put my coilovers (Tanabe Sustec Pro 5) and exhaust(Tanabe Medalion Touring) on. IS250 suspension installation is way harder than the IS300.

Threw on a set of Scaras that I'm planning to rebarrel in the future.

Test fitted a wald style body kit, fitment was pretty much on point.

Painted and painted over and over. GFM is such a pain to color match. Ended up having to just blend into the car. It still came out pretty nice.

Had my friend Rocky roll my fenders in preparation for my newly refinished Scaras.

welcome to the 2IS section. I've seen your IS300. What did you do with it? Looks like you'll need NO help with modding this one!!!

Nice welcome to the 2IS world. I also have seen your car plenty of times in the web, one of my favorite 1IS for sure. Can't wait to see your 250 come to life!

Love your 1IS minh! I've seen it a couple of times when I was down in SoCal.

Great color choice on your new whip!

Happy modding!
