    Congrats on the new wife and kid. I really did the direction of your build but I'm bummed to see the Enkeis go before the build. Did you ever get the parts from threepieceus.com or cancel them? I've got to rebuild two different sets and can't seem to find parts specific to them anywhere.

    thank you! and thanks, i ordered 60 hole lips from threepiece thinking they would work cause the hardware looked similar to that of weds LXZ but once i took apart the enkeis i realized they have a lip on the back of the face which didnt let them sit flush on the lips. so honestly the only way to relip them would be to get custom lips/barrels made. after spending over $600 on new lips i just figured it would be cheaper to sell the enkeis and get wheels i could use with my lips, hence the weds. i sold the enkeis to a close friend so hopefully he does something with them soon and i can post them up here, theyll be going on a Y33.

    Honestly, i agree. I loved those Kranze but... i didn’t notice until at the time of the trade that one of the faces had cancer under the finish. The WedsSport are in 110% perfect condition so I’m happy with that

    Quote Originally Posted by Quillhill36 View Post

    Lol i know, i do regret it HOWEVER.... the lips i had for the Kranze were 5.5”. If i rebuilt them they would have been 19x11.5 and 19x12, that’s too aggressive for front wheels. Also it would have cost me more money to downsize the wheels. On the plus side, the WedsSports are extremely lighter and already good specs and in near brand new condition.

    I’m happy with the trade, kinda, and they’ll do for now. It’s hard spending money on the car when my wife doesn’t work and we have two children i need to support. So it’s fine with me, family first.

    Hey guys not much has progressed unfortunately. Work has become slow due to the holidays and financially tight, so funds for the car are on hold until further notice, most likely until tax season. But I did find a buyer for my stock bumper so I took some time to take it off to sell.

    AND MAN LET ME TELL YOU! These damn Sc's and their ridiculous amount of screws and bolts required to remove the front bumper

    But before I got started, I decided to test fit the WedsSports to get an idea on fitment and appearance with my Rays lug nuts

    And on the car

    Now granted this is on stock suspension and droop, so once coils are on it will naturally camber about 4 degrees giving me a good fitment

    Now onto the biggest pain, the bumper.

    1996 Lexus SC300 Family Heirloom by Bryan Boeldt, on Flickr

    Here is whats needed to remove said bumper:
    Philips head screwdriver or drill
    10mm socket and ratchet
    Some dykes for cutting uncooperative plastics
    Obviously a floor jack and stands
    Shit to take the wheels off
    Some patience

    Anyways after removing 40+ screws and bolts, remove the splash guard underneath the engine, the wheel well covers, windshield washer fluid reservoir, headlights, unclip high beams, weather stripping on top of bumper, and thats about it.

    And then clean all the shit up, throw the car int he garage and go upstairs and drink lots of alcohol.

    Now that the hardest OEM part is removed, I may start tackling other parts of the car that needs to be removed like the rear bumper and fenders so I can relocate the wiring harness.

    Also, at my shop were building a halfpipe for shits and giggles so the boss (aka my father in law) said I can bring the car in and finish it up in our warehouse since we'll have some space. So fingers crossed for some ACTUAL work space.

    Just another minor update guys.

    When lowering "most" Lexus' the wiring harness usually needs to be relocated from under the wheel well to give more clearance and to not rub through it and fuck everything up.

    I got a Harbor Freight gift card for christmas and I was overdue for a new floor jack, so.....

    Wiring Harness Relocation by Bryan Boeldt, on Flickr

    I fucking love this thing!

    Anyways, I watched this youtube video and the guy was extremely detailed and it helped me SO MUCH. HOWEVER, I forgot to latch one simple latch after reinstalling the wiring harness plugs which led to a 3+ hour troubleshooting/head scratching episode because the car would not start.



    I eventually turned to Facebook and was given the advice to put the latch back up to secure the plug thus allowing me to turn on the car

    Anyways, heres some AFTER photos of said relocation. Also wrapped everything in new electrical tape for a cleaner look.

    NOW THAT THATS DONE...

    I am planning on putting the coils on sometime soon, However its going to be raining for the next week here in sunny Southern California. So time will tell,

    Till next time!
