Nice, I was looking at the paint and was like "looks black cherry-ish," I guess the burgundy clear is why. Looks good, what you do to the grille? Is it painted or black chrome? One more question, brake discs, what you go with? Looks straight, I'll be hopefully building mine and have it out this spring....

The grill is painted to match the paint on the car, I am going to change it sooner or later to Fabulous grill.
The rotors are R1Concepts cross-drilled & slotted.

That's a crazy clean car man. I love that tint! Where did you get it? I've always wanted some blue tint but your red looks awesome.

Thank you
Tail Lights are from ebay, yes ebay! That was the only place I found them, paid around $300, they come smoked or you can get clear ones. I have had no problems with them & they look great

Default Some updates...

Since my last post...
-Wheels were refinished(thanks to a shop that messed up one wheel & had to redo them all)

-Smoked Headlights & fog lights

-Swapped out my air management for the Air Lift v2 AutoPilot

-Had paint-correction/detail done which really made the paint pop

-Replaced the Tie Rod ends, inner & outer, left & right, & lower control arm bushings. After I went to get an alignment, but shop was unable to adjust my camber since the bolt are seized, I went to the Lexus dealer & ordered new Camber bolts to be able to adjust my camber.

-Swapped out the OEM grill for a chrome emblemless grill

Guess that is pretty much it for now.


The LS was just featured on Canibeat.com, go check out the amazing photos!
