Nice pictures and useful threads, nice work !! :D
Yeah, brilliant stuff :)
excellent work
Good job man.

You have done well.

This should be pinned.

What a beauty ! :yahoo:
Very well done :D
Excellent work fella,

Well done

Always loved this car :) so subtle and clean but looks menacing good work Patrik

Thanks a lot guys :) I just figured a few of my pictures could answer some members' questions

Excellent thread and reference.

Looking forward to the retrofit projectors!

Thanks :) So do I. I'm currently looking for a broken IS300 headlight to experiment with. A sponsor of mine have provided me with two 65mm projectors and a D2S Xenon system.

I have also found out who makes the L-tuned front bumper I've fallen in love with... it turns out that it is Toyota Japan, which is both good and bad. Since it's made by Toyota it should fit perfectly, but it's quite expensive. About £750 + shipping from Japan.

This is the bumper I'm very close to buying, I already have the L-tuned rims:

Yeah the Legena as Rolex said, theres quite a few altezza's with them on. Maybe try to find a Altezza thats being broken and see if theyll ship it to you?

Thank you for the advice. Australia and NZ seem to be homes to a lot of tezzas. I think NZ is as far away as you can possibly get from here, without leaving the earth, but if I buy one second hand it might be worth it.

My projectors have been delayed a bit. Winter came and forced me out into the snow…

My summer wheels have been washed and are now hibernating in the basement, along with two sets of OEM 17” IS wheels. And yes, I do have a bathtub in my workshop :D Excellent for cleaning car parts.

ahh domestic bliss, bits of car in the house :lol:

I bet the wife wasn't happy !!

No, really, the bathtub is in the workshop :D It sits there among welding sets, pillar drills lathes etc.

Besides, my girlfriend gets to drive all sorts of nice cars that I borrow from the dealers :P

AAAAARGH!!!! *kind of like the deatch scream of C&C soldiers*

After days of searching I finally found the part number for the Legana front (08164-53010-B0). I gave it to the local Toyota dealer and asked for a quote... 29.613 kr (£2369)

I think I'll just keep looking for a second hand one. If I can't find one before the spring I will order it from Japanparts.com - £768 + shipping

Thanks mate. You just emptied my wallet :D I've got to buy the Legana bumper soon.

Yesterday a package arrived, my stainless steel dials :) Hopefully I will be able to take some nice pictures of them tomorrow.

Lagana bumper is ugly man.pjuke!dont do it.even the oem is much better.

tte is the best looking at moment.

Everyone has different tastes, personally I preferred the stock to the TTE and the Legana over all three - if we all thought the same we'd all be driving around in identical cars :)

Look great mate.

as always a sterling job.

Thanks :) Without the excellent guide that came with the dials I wouldn't have made it though.

Yep, they come pre painted in any Lexus color you want, complete with the big ALTEZZA logo.

I'm sorry mate :blush: I was so eager to fit them that I didn't remember to let you know. Thank you Mr. Jason :)

I totally agree with you. The TTE bumper is not ugly, but i would prefer a stock bumper with a TRD lip to it. However, the Legana beats everything :) That fact that it IS an OEM bumper makes me want it even more.

Thanks a lot :)

Absolutely, mate. I'm just glad to help. About 2pm tomorrow I will take another picture. I've figured that time it will still be bright enough for the dials to shine and dark enough for them to be visibly lit. We'll see how it goes.
