JDMSW20's Obsidian IS350 Build

Compliments of jdmSW20 @ clublexus.com


Whats going on folks, been on the boards awhile so i figured i would start a build thread. I bought my 07 IS350 x-package, this past december when i sold my old 99 LS400. Ive really just been nesting parts for months now but the time has to come to share some pics and progress. Enjoy

To this, when i first saw her on the lot. I flew to Cali just to scoop her up

SSR SP1 19x8.5/19x10(sold)

SSR SP3 19x10/19x11

I bought coilovers on the black friday group buy a week before I even owned the car lol. I was that sure I was going to get her

Been riding around lowered on the stock X-package wheels every since

From this point ive just been racking up parts, jumping on deals when i can. just a sample of whats too come. hopefully i can get everything on and painted within the next couple weeks

came up on a set of SSR Professor from a friend here thats huge lexus enthusiast as well. they needed some TLC but nothing that couldnt be handled

shortly after this is how they turned out, fully polished outer lips and faces, the inner barrels were brushed

Was lucky enough to come up on an LX Mode grill from a CL member and an authentic Vertex front lip and side skirts from another(dont mind the bumper from my mr2 project and the spare 350 eng cover lol)

I also had ISF interior trim but had to learn the hard way that 09+ interior trim doesnt work in 06-08 IS's lol 

the most recent pic as of last night one of the homies ray rolling the fenders and prepping to get the wheels on soon. he takes this seriously lol

I tried to get his 240 in the shot too. i apologize for the iphone quality of the pics
