Mine is a 2000 Millennium Edition which came with the all black grille, I think it would look great on yours...

weird i was about to say that! lol
even a bubble **** would look decent! i have a BIG flower shifter in my GS lol
leather and/or wood ones can be found pretty decently online for a more classic look

Makes me want to pick up a hub/quick release for mine... lol. As for the shifter, maybe just find a 98+ Lexus, and snag a wooden shift **** off of it

This has definitely been a budget build. I don't think I've paid for anything new except for my front clears. I got about 3k in mods. That's including wheels and tires and coilovers. I just keep my eye on ls400 classifieds and ebay auctions.

Thanks. The airbag light is on. It doesn't bother me. The horn and cruise control I'm doing later. Gonna put the switch under the hub, Usoff89 has his in the same spot. I'll post pics when I get it done.

Today I installed a chrome bulbs because as you can see the yellow factory made it look like I had egg yokes in the back. These are just some ebay cheap ones. Work fine. So much better! Didn't get red bulbs because they really don't show. Light output? Not bad, no complaints.

Got a chance to take some photos of the curtains installed since I dyed them. I like the black better also installed my visors. Had them painted black also. Only the inside of the visors are painted. That
Way it removes the purple tint and I don't have to paint the Toyota logo and cause it to become blurry
As i have seen before.

looking good.. i don't usually condone visors but those visors? The Toyota OEM with the chrome stripe? *Fabolous voice* Nice

Now if only you could get the nice lexus L on those visors... I would buy some of those in a heartbeat... Especially if I could get them painted in a 4P2...
