  1. Don't think Halfords stock it, but easy to buy online..... Here you go: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gliptone-Liquid-Leather-Cleaner-Conditioner/273008943163?epid=1505473712&hash=item3f9099e03b:g:PpEAAOSwyLFZr767 I've used it for years and swear by it.
  2. Professional Detail

    Looks lovely Carl, having a dark coloured car myself I know how hard they can be to keep looking tip-top, nice work.
  3. Very nice indeed Phil, you certainly have found a cracking GS there, hope it gives you many years of trusty service and enjoyment. When I bought my GS I looked at an 06 model before buying the one I have now, the tax was over £500. Mine is a couple of months older (55 plate) and it's £300 ish, a big difference for a few months! If you don't mind my asking, what sort of price did you pay?
  4. Just a heads up, the new issue of Modern Classics magazine has a feature on the IS-F.
  5. IS300 2JZ-GE NAT #no compromise

    Good progress Rob, liking the small details such as the gear pattern plaque
  6. IS300 2JZ-GE NAT #no compromise

    Hi Rob, and a belated welcome to the club. I loved my IS300 Sportcross, hope you get as much enjoyment from your IS, certainly a rare find with only 28k on the clock. It's nice to see someone take on an older Lexus and get really stuck into it. I love projects like this, will be watching this thread/build with interest. Wishing you all the best.
  7. Seems a bit highly priced for year and mileage but then again it's a dealer so there might be some wiggle room. If you do go to view one make sure you check the inner sides of the exhaust back boxes and the v-section as these are prone to rust. Hope you find a nice one, they are lovely cars, I absolutely love mine.
  8. On an open road is where the LS400 really comes into it's own, a magic carpet ride and effortless power.
  9. Leaving the fold....

    Very nice indeed Martin, the colour is stunning. Hope it gives you great service and many miles of enjoyment. Do post some more pics once the weather has allowed a bit of pampering.
  10. As the title says, what is the centre bore diameter of GS Sport/Borbet TTE alloy wheels? Thanks in advance.
  11. mk1 to mk3 rims

    I stand to be corrected on the sensor query, but I seem to recall reading someone fitting aftermarket wheels and having an issue with the sensors, hence why I flagged it up. Hopefully someone with direct experience will be along shortly to clarify further. I love the look of the Borbets as well, in fact I was considering a Gen2 GS430 Sport before I went for my Gen3, the staggered Borbets suit the Gen2 well. Hope the trip to Lexus proves fruitful, will await your news.
