Default 08 AWD GS350 Build

Hello Club Lexus! Here's my first Lexus build, enjoy!

Purchased last year in July with 82k miles on it.

Mercury Metallic with black interior.



20% tint all around, 30% tint on the front windshield, OEM window visors bought from JDM Nigel, interior and exterior bulbs upgraded to LED


The car has also been fully paint corrected then ceramic coated with CarPro C-Quartz. 2 layers on the whole car including windows and wheels.



Little sneak peak of what's going on the car.

Thanks man, you can always upgrade to the height sensors later. I'll post some pics for people when I get them mounted.

Buddy let me borrow his spare set of TE-37's to ride around on. Need to get some fender work done in the rear to air all the way out. the fronts are fine.
Also got some custom 30mm shortened knuckles along with SPC Performance front ball joints installed. In the rear i got all Figs Engineering arms installed (LCA, trac arms, upper links, toe links)

I upgraded from my garden hose foam cannon to an electric one. First time using it this morning and I am very satisfied with the upgrade!

Went to get the rear arms readjusted and an alignment. Took the rims off and put back on the stocks. I have to take the car to the dealership tomorrow to get the front bumper painted. Iíll have more pics when I get the car back.

Just Picked up my car from the Lexus dealership, they scratched it during a recall and repainted it.
I got new rotors from Brakenetic. These are the GT series, symmetrical curve slotted.

Spray painted the calipers black real quick before putting them on.


Also got the hybrid grille


Neck pads and fusa knot (not pictured) from Junction Produce

If you are in the SoCal area and need some fender shaving or rolling call David at Dapper Works. Great work at an affordable price. He is located in Brea but can drive to you.
Before and after of my rears shaved
