Carbon wrap on the stock wood .

8000k HID upgrade

I usually have it lower up front but raised it before heading overseas so it could make it up the driveway..

I am typing all this on my iPad and my first post was getting hard to edit.

Mods if you need to merge my post, please do.

Okay so last night they had an event at the shop I am using in Florida to do part of my build.

My buddy work there and I am good friends with the owner so he graves a couple pics for me.

It has been at the shop 2 days and has the following.

Roof, pillars removed

All door panels and trim pieces are removed also.

Well on to some pics of progress 

Vertex kit is in

Carson roof wing is also in

My buddy is holding on for me.

Stereo equipment is in and also the fabrics for the wrap. But I'll leave those out until complete..

Yeah, well since I was in the military before, my dad got to mess with my vehicles when I had them shipped back home. So he enjoys this kind of hobby also.

Now i ontract and he has nicer toys of mine to mess with. Haha.

My plan is to get back and it be complete so I can put my other Lexus for sale.

LUTZ is a very reputable shop in the Tampa, FL area and they are taking good care of my car and doing a little extra for me on this build.

VIP modular is setting me up nicely with the wheels and Jovan, my buddy at the shop has built some clean a$$ cards.

I will keep you updated as soon as I get more pics. I am very excited about this build!
