    Re: Simplistic GS430 (EXE-style)

    I appreciate all of the comments fellas!!

    Let's continue... as promised, here are the front wheels (and STILL waiting on the rears.... ugh). I went with Hyper Black, although they don't appear to be as dark as I was thinking they'd be.




    I went with Black Chrome Muteki SR48 lugs/locks (thinking that they'd match). Well, they don't, but they do flow and will help tie in the color of my new grille

        Thanks man, I appreciate it.

        Continuing on.... like I said yesterday, the lug nuts match the grille I ended up purchasing. It's also black chrome in color, and I picked it up from one of the guys over at Club Lexus. I also got around to test fitting the JZS147 grille but unfortunately, I'll have to cut into the engine cover for it to fit... not too difficult, so it is what it is.

                  Some more updates...

                  My Lower ball joints showed up. I had wanted to install them yesterday but couldn't find the motivation, not to mention had a headache, so I'll get to them along with the RCA's sometime this coming week/weekend



                  Also, my rear wheels FINALLY showed up a month after the fronts. The boxes looked like they had been through hell but atleast the wheels were fine.





                  I also went ahead and set the preload on the coilovers, although I didn't get any pictures of that. But, I'm sure most have seen it done before so no biggie.

                    Finally got around to fitting the HID bulbs into the new fog housings... was a serious pain but hopefully they'll be worth it in the long-run. Still need to find a good body shop to get them paint-matched but I'll have to test fit them and get the bumper situated first.

                      Nice build so far mate.

                      You could also call the brake calipers JDM Celsior brakes. I have the same set-up on my car including the lines and the Figs rca's.

                        North, where did you get that brake lines from ?? I've tried goodridge's main dealer and they keep saying those lines don't exist for the JZS16*

                          Keith, if you want them for your car, I can buy them off Yahoo for you and send them off to you?

                            Group buy price could bring the price down a little if there is enough interest.
