I think it came out exactly as I was hoping. My body is feeling its age. I am now feeling the work I did that last two days installing those coilovers and taking the tires on and off. I would probably be dead if I didn't have a lift and air tools.

I do have the muffler banging around underneath the car now so off to investigate that but the car looks aggressive. The ride is firm but not overly firm, I am used to driving it in S+ anyway.

Although I only disconnected the AVS my volume **** doesn't work. I will troubleshoot but that might result in another trip to Lexus. Found a fix that worked on 3rd Gen forum.

Next week or so I might remove water/meth but I think that is all for now.

Installed some rear links on the Franken-Lexus today. With the drop the wheels were riding on the inside edge. Figs Engineering make Lexus suspension components. Talked to the owner for a while. Great group of guys. Install was fairly straightforward, as usual first one wanted to stay together other side was much quicker.

Default Playing hide and seek

Don't you love it when your car plays hide and seek?

I have 20% all around, but I have removable screens in the back windows so it looks darker. My other Lexus has 5% and I can’t see anything at night.

Installed some Upper Links from Figs Engineering, local so I drove down and picked them up and installed them in about three hours. Otherwise the drop was wearing on the inside of the tires and there is no adjustability in the rear. I am pretty sure I will install front mounts from Figs when I get the desire to scrape off some knuckles again.

It sits too low now, I might hit a chicken. I have heard that they have really expensive chickens down there. Today we are installing the ethanol content gauge and switching to e50 blend got two 5 gal cans of e70 according to my test. Now I don't know where to dump the fuel from container. Firstworldproblems.
