purchased my sc in january and became a member on cl soon after.
due to my crazy life schedule i just recently had time to get into the shop and start this project.
so here are some pics of the work so far...all comments welcome and sorry all you wheel ****s
but no crazy offsets and blown out fenders here.

lists of parts so far...

r1 concepts rotors front and rear
ls400 calipers
bc coilovers
rota grids
6k hids

i have a few more chassis mods would like to get finished and then i will be putting my 1j r154 swap in a month or two and will post pics
of this aswell.thanks guys.

looks good. I just don't feel the gold emblems. Maybe matte black would look good. But it's your car and your choice. Keep it up.
Any future plans?

Nice, our SC's are like twins from different dimensions... :D:D:D Welcome to CL!

Where in VA are you located? I'm down in the Peninsula, the Hampton Roads area.
Nice looking car btw, and welcome!

Totally jealous, I've been looking for gold emblems! Love the whip man. I'm gonna go with the same type of style of wheels (XXR 530's)

Our cars will eventually be twins. I'm in the process of swapping in a full Soarer 1JZGTE R154 Swap. Taking forever though

Nice lookin ride! I love having a 1jz but I need bigger brakes. I just ordered up my set to put on. I like the white and bronze. Looks great!

Another new member with a great start. Car looks good, just the way it sits. Nothing crazy or extreme, just simple yet elegant...

Welcome to CL!

Very nice! And as 1992Lexus stated, you're off to a great start. You can't go wrong with the 1J either! Thx for sharing!
