A few little updates as I'm saving up to either do interior or wheel and suspension mods.
Blew my one week old Kicker Comp-r on the way home from work..... but luckily I had warranty on it from best buy, so I decided to swap it for what I originally wanted in the first place.
Alpine Type S

And in before that as you might have seen me post in other threads I decided to do a little foglight mod with some S14 foglights I had laying around. The glass covers were shattered so I pulled them off and for now it's all temporary until I make a new housing or cover.

Im asking because most all VIP builds are going to focus on very clean (almost minimalistic) install of exterior as well as interior modifications.
From what you have posted i am not seeing the CLEAN factor of VIP.
thats why im asking.
I know that build are works in progress. i have wheels and coils waiting as i want to finish other things first but im not callsifing my build as VIP.
I have seen very well done VIP cars on this site and i do not even come close to the quality and money spent therefore im not going to say im building a VIP car. but thats me.

I hope you show me that your going to build something amazing.

So I have an off topic question--- watcha gonna do with the stock radio you took out? Want to sell it to me? Haha I have been looking for one but they are either broken or ungodly expensive. I want to go back to stock because I like the "all-original" look in my car. But on topic, build is looking great so far. It'll be interesting to keep an eye on this thread as I'm sure you'll be bringing some pretty sweet things to the table. I dig the fog light mod you did!

I like the fog light mod. Pretty creative thinking there.

I hit a deer running about 60 mph on the way to work at like 7:45.
I thought it was back to the drawing board but my partner and I managed to ride to ATL and find a matching hood and headlight assembly for $80. So with a little hammering, a come a long, and some pulling this was the end result.

That's all for now other than I stopped by pull a part in Montgomery to pick up a few interior pieces and motor plastics I needed to get the car 100% OEM motorwise. But for Now I found a 1 owner 1999 LS400 with mint exterior and Int and I'm thinking about just selling this project and starting fresh with it that way I don't have to play catch up since it needs no fixing, body work, interior, or anything, I can just strictly maintain and mod.
