what's up man,I'm in GA too, Marietta to be exact. Glad I checked out this thread! your ucf20 is awesome! I've been catching up on maintenance with my car so haven't been able to do too much fun mods yet. Check out my build thread, i have a miata too lol.

I would love to know where you got those headlight & taillights, they're legit.

also, how do you like the ride quality of the BC's? I just did all the front suspension on my car and just need to get good shocks/coilovers to top it off.

Hey man! I love the color of yours. I'm in the Duluth area. Luckily I didn't have to catch up on that much maintenance like you though. The only real problem I had with the car is whoever installed the control arms before me didn't grease them so it would clunk when I made sharp turns.

I got the headlights and tail lights from Ken Osugis Toyota Celsior. Really great guy. He's parting most of his stuff on the ls400 classifieds page.

I never had a problem with BCs. Wish I had gotten a softer spring rate though

I was going to say you must have bought Kens stuff, lol, I was watching his stuff go fast and he sent me pics of the tails. I was trying to see if they were the same as mine but I don't think they are. I tried to get his grill but it was gone before I could. Scraape, you and I need to get together next spring when the shows start, lol. Good start man, really good. SuperStar is in your area and they do some great work. Bucky is a good dude and just finished an LS like ours for a buddy in NY. If you need parts check out Tom Nguyen (in Va) in the 400 classifieds also, good dude, good prices too and usually can get whatever is on the auction pages. Central Pine has some good stuff too, Sam is a cool dude over there in Cali.

Yep! Lol guess who bought the grill? I've talked to Bucky, I'm thinking about doing my suspension and body work there.

LOL, it all looks good man. Bucky is a good dude, he did my LS430 and that was rear ended which sucks but my 400 should be ready by the spring. We should get together and head to a meet.
