Default Proud new LS400 owner and member

Just bought my first LS a week ago and have been reading the forums all week. Great site! My car is in pretty good shape for a '92 with 192K. First thing's first, I replaced the climate control with a new one (blacked out LCD of course). Luckily, I found an entire working unit at a lot about 3 minutes from my home Also replaced the original wheels with some '99 GS ones. Not sure about the way it looks yet...

Thanks for the warm welcome, all. It was nice today so I took a few pics. Still not sure about the wheels...I think I may go with a set of '98 ES Coach 15 inchers. I'd like to keep it clean and stock. Fix all the little cosmetic stuff that bugs me to look at..

Yeah, I definitely have a few spots I would like to get touched up paint wise but overall, the paint is in pretty darn good shape considering. The Front bumper has a spot where it's chipping and the yellow is showing. Anyone done a touch up on paint for bumpers or anything? I'm curious of the cost cause I drive a Lexus on a budget
