I bought these half projector retrofitted from Japan years back and finally decided it was time to rebuild to how I wanted. The LED tail lights also came from Japan.
I originally bought this black on black LS400 to part out and return to stock and keep the big brake kit for my self. After looking the car over and over again I decided it would be easier if I parted it out and kept the chassis for my self and swap all my parts over to it. The door jams are black, engine bay is black… If I paint the car an off color off black or dark any color it would be fine with black engine bay. Plus there were no holes cut for upper control arm slap. My suspension setup doesn’t require cutting holes =D
Let’s just say it was one of the longest trips ever. Drove from SC to Kansas City to my boys shop JT Autosports got some prep done at Modified By KC because two shops working together to make magic happen!….Hung out with them all night/morning. Things didn’t go so well. Got some pho and some sleep. Decided we work on the car some more. Made big power on the rollers. Popped the head gasket on the last pull. We flipped a coin. Decided to load the car on the trailer and fix it at the track in Maryland! The GPS took us through the wrong road and we had to limp the dually since the engine brake stopped working. Trans fluid got hot and shot out the dipstick at the top of a mountain. Luckily fellow trucker stopped and gave us a ride to a Napa to get some trans fluid. We made it to the track safely, made it through tech and started working on the motor for qualifying the next morning.
Just go look at the pictures and come back to read this if you want to know more. LOL.
Ended up doing a trans service for the dually at the track and doing the front brakes! We ended up going through 2-3 heads and 2 blocks at the track. That’s not counting what John has went through before I got there to KC.
Started it’s life as a Toyota Tundra SR5 then had the XSP package added. When I got it I rebadged to Lexus to confuse everyone that sees it!
After sitting outside for a year after purchase at an auction. The pile of parts started stacking up. I made it out to Kansas City to JT Autosports to work on it before bringing it home.
