Appreciate it. I'm always in orlando, can't wait for another big lexus meet to see everyone again though. I believe Wringo is in the process of planning something now.

Picked up a Vipdout table and installed Bellezza curtains. Loving the way this car is coming together. On the look now for some visors and rear roof spoiler. Thinking about ordering one from spoiler king.

I got a spoilerking roof spoiler for my car (~$80), haven't installed it yet since I'm still trying to figure out how to paint it but since your car is black you shouldn't have any issues.

Are you selling yours? I was going to paint mine with same color code black to match the car.

Nah I'm not selling mine (although I just reread my post, apologies for making it sound like that) but here's the one I bought

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lexus-LS400-1995-2000-Rear-Roof-Wing-Window-Spoiler-95-96-97-98-99-00-/271308376403?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Model%3ALS400&hash=item3f2b3d4953&vxp=mtr
They come in a matte black type finish but you could paint it if you wanted it glossy to match

Watch "1997 ls400 coach edition." on YouTube
1997 ls400 coach edition.:


oem paint is still amazing. Shot this after I applied compound, polish, and wax. Video upload took out a lot of the quality.

Appreciate it. And I understand what you mean about the clears, it's a "love it or hate it" mod. Lol

Came across some pretty good deal and couldn't turn them down. Got the NRG Short hub and quick release for a 100 bucks shipped. Never thought about running a different wheel but the deal got me thinking. I was going to run a NRG wheel until many people advised me on the not so great quality. Did a lot of research, I almost pulled the trigger on Grip Royal until I started looking at the Nardi wheels and fell in love. Finally, patience paid off and I came
across this Nardi 390 mm classic. For 120, it was a steal. I'll post pics when I get it in.

I was hoping you would just hit up a boat graveyard and just snag a "fitting" wheel from an older yacht.

Just finished installing Nardi 390mm Cassico. NRG short hub with quick release. Didn't have time to reroute the cruise control. Very pleased with the quality. I'm glad I went with the larger radius wheel.

I also died my curtains today. Got tired of the faded lines. Couldn't find a tan die that matched up well so I just went black. I like it better, the car is black too so it still looks good. Plus, I paid 6 bucks for the die. That's better than paying over 200 for some new ones.

IMO you need a nicer shift ****. Maybe a wood one? It would be sweet if you could find one with wood and metal trim to match the wheel.
