    I have a soft spot for the IS300 and the amount of options they have available? What' are the goals for the car or the look you're going for?

    Ahh, if only it had an actual motor in it, unfortunately, this is the IS200, with the 2l 6 in it, pretty slow.
    One day, it'll get a shaved bay and a nice little 2jz in it.
    For now, I want too concentrate on getting the paint fixed up, getting some adjustable arms too correct the terrible alignment that it has, and play around with the wheels colours so that it kinda looks a bit neater

    Alright guys, been inactive as hell, had life going on, kinda just bumping up while also posting an update.
    The cars finally got coilovers all round, I also went out and purchased some 17x8 and 17x9 +36 Jap wheels (can never remember how the brands spelt) and they caused some maaaaad scrubbage, so the fenders got rolled a little bit, apart from that, progress has been slow, lost my job so taking it one step at a time
    have just about finishing painting the headlight housings.

    I saw one of these rolling in Hollywood with a bash bar front end and maybe a 2jz swap? (big fat intercooler up front) One of the sickest cars I've ever seen, I just wish the manual ones were easier to find.

    maybe this is my personal opinion, but in my opinion bust. I like when titans are all in one color. Painting 1-2 tires do not see the point...

    These are awesome! I just recently sold mine. But I loved pretty much everything about it.
