It should begin the paint process later tomorrow or Friday morning and they are shooting to have it done by Friday night. They'll send me some pictures by the end of today once it's done with primer. So I'll post those up later tonight.
I expected it would take longer. Aligning the grill was a pain. I took my bumper on and off a billion timmes before getting it right where I wanted it. Lookin forward to the finish Sebastian.

I'm so excited to see this. I hope you're able to list everything you had to put into it for materials. I would definitely do this to mine, would like to know how much this comes to as well. Kudos to the shop.

Nope because the stock 2IS bumper was molded with the 3IS bumper

I'll post all the parts I purchased and give a price rundown tomorrow when I get the chance. I'll also include the labor and give a grand total.

Do you know if the Lexus emblem in the front lines up with the new grill (For those who have PCS)?
