Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 2000 lexus GS300. I'm knocking out some rust soon so I'm gonna clean it up and move on to making it look better. I personally believe they don't look the best how they come. Usually I like the way stock cars look and the clean appearance. This one I'd prefer but I'm not looking for attention. 

 

For starts I was thinking about vinyl wrapping the chrome for starts because it doesn't really fit it to me. 

Im open to wheel suggestions that look clean fit right and don't catch for attention. I do a lot of driving, and a personal rule I follow is to keep your cars quiet and clean looking to avoid law enforcements bias. 

Open to all opinions somewhat relevant to the topic so no chrome 22"s. If you have an example of yours, I'm excited to see

Welcome to the site Ethan. I'm on board with your idea to de-chrome the chrome. Something like gun metal would reduce the bling without becoming just another blacked out black car. 

My son put 18" wheels on his Aristo that are some kind of slightly gray instead of the standard alloy look. Pretty stealth mod actually.

I'll ask him what car they came from. 

 

I removed the logos from my trunk and plan on having some charcoal flat black die cast decals made to replace them. 

But first off get that glass look going. A good polish and a super shine will be the best mod you can do.

      Can someone please help me! I got my ignition coil changed on my 2004 gs300 on saturday because my car was having misfires. After changing the ignition coils I tried to crank the car but it wouldn't start, we disconnected everything new and put all the old ones back on and still nothing, then I realized the alarm indicator is blinking even when the key I in the ignition and turned. I tried a locksmith and he assured me nothing is wrong with the key, PLEASE HELP ME. I've changed the fuel pump, spark plugs and also tried everything I read online about resetting the alarm and nothing works, I can activate and deactivate the alarm from my key pad but the light continues to blink and the car refuses to start

      Hey everybody!
      I just became the proud new owner of a rare 1992 Es300 5 speed. I've been looking for a long time and finally tracked one down. Its in pretty good shape, I got lucky and found one with only 1 previous owner and she had it what work was done on it performed at a local toyota dealership. But it isn't perfect by any means...
      It has 398.000 miles on it for starters. There aren't any leaks fortunately and the transmission still seems to have life in it but obviously it isn't going to last too much longer without my divine intervention (and hopefully LexusOwnersClub.com too). Not too many cosmetic issues. I bought it in the Sacramento area so the front seats leather is dry and have split a few seams on the drivers side and the leather on the door panel surrounding the door lever has dried and shrunk to the point of needing replacement. The rear Passenger window came out of place and both mirrors are loose at the pivot point that attaches to the car body. Also the power antenna and motor is broken and the passenger side speaker doesn't work. Otherwise its in very good shape. I plan on rebuilding or replacing as much as possible on it or at least whats reasonable and when I do that I would like to upgrade as much as possible. Basically I'm going for a build based on the Midship Runabout guide  ( http://midshiprunabout.org/mk2/why-the-3vz-fe-is-the-best-toyota-v6/ ) and the Toysrme 3vz-fe tuning guide ( http://www.mr2.com/forums/threads/1899-Toysrme-s-N-A-3vz-fe-Tuning-Guide-(Applies-to-all-N-A-v6-s) ).  I have a motor with 180,000 miles on it that I plan on doing a complete tear down and rebuild and I want to try to install an E153 transmission and use a LSD from a MR2.  I haven't been able to find any useful info on a good clutch setup yet but perhaps someone here has some insight. 
      So basically I'm on here to get whatever this forum has to offer. Tips, tricks, advice, warnings, parts for sale or sources for parts would be greatly appreciated!!! Also since there is alot of knowledge and experience buried in this site I figured that my project would be a good opportunity to consolidate all of the significant information into one solid thread. I will be posting pics of what I'm starting with and will document my progress on the way. I will also post links to anything that I find useful as I come across it. I've read up on alot but I haven't had the opportunity to pursue anything major yet. I'm not incapable but feel free to explain things to me like I'm incompetent I'm sure it will make things easier in the long run.
      My goal is to build a "brand new" and improved 1992 Lexus ES300 and I would a greatly appreciate any insight or guidance.
      Thanks to all

      Hello, I'm looking into weight reduction and I'm trying to figure out the weight of the trunk and hood. I plan on replacing both however I've heard from one source that their 2000 IS has a 40 pound hood, another said mine is 80lb. Its a full steel hood so I'm hoping it's heavier than 40 pounds. Thanks.
