hi my names dan i brought a lexus gs300 off my friend for a nice respectable £900 for a project car as i cant drive due to medical reasons till aug/ september time nxt year 2012 so need somethink that will keep me busy till then so i decided to but a lexus had lots of cars in the past but never a lexus my first struggle was finding parts that i could buy as i found out theres hardly any parts avalible in the uk for my car so i orderd some bits from abroad any way enough chat heres some pics hope you all like it
fitted 12inch lanzar sub nicely tucked away behind the boot in-between the 2 rear headrest as you do lol
car and wheels nicely cleaned for one last time now the fun begins
orderd my new erebuni side skirts and when they arrived fro japan i fitted the new side skirts nice and easy job
orderd the rear erebuni bumper arrived today so fitted it on the car wasnt easy took a lot of fidling but got there in the end note exhuast are missing as getting new ones once i decide on what ones to get was thinking 2x oval or 2x jap cans what do you lot think ???
orderd a custom bonnet aswell should be picking it up mid march once arrives in uk
also orderd rear jdm lights from japan agian so got ages to wait for them to arrive :-(
got to decide on a what rear spoiler to get still
still got to decide weather to change the 18 inch alloys for some deeper dish ones or respray the alloys
i have a few ideas
gold rim white lip ??
white lip black rim ???
or could just got black rim and leave lip chrome ??
black rim gold lip
so far i like the gold wheel white lip and the black wheel white lip but still cant make my mind up any suggestions ??
dash wood bits on front and rear doors and surronds have been coverd in carbon fibre the wood look was horrible ans so not staying lol looks so much better now
thats bout it for now still got lots to do tho
turbo conversion / if i can find a decent manual gear box be good as want to do manual conversion if not will stay auto
got to order the front top and lower strut braces and rear top and lower strut braces
and decide on what exhaust to get and weather to decat it or not
also maybe a retrim on the leather or new recling bucket seats in the front and possibly a roll cage fitted
and decide weather to cover the front and rear bumper side skirts and bonnet in carbon wrap or not ??
