Mk4 LS400

Recommended Posts

Have been trying to reply to this for a few days now but it seems the Tapatalk app is no longer working properly on my phone so had to wait for an opportunity to use my laptop.

 

In regards to the above comments, I have two grills in the shed now, one with a silver badge and one with a gold. Not sure if I'd like to put either on yet but at least I have the option 🙂

 

The other thing to say was that practice definitely makes perfect on a lot of things. the first set of indicators that I removed the orange part from was definitely a learning experience, and from this I have managed to do a second set with much better results, see image below.20180516_130045.thumb.jpg.11da01dfa548a31720c2256bd8205a72.jpg

 

The bottom set were the first ones, seen by the rubber seal being damaged and being able to see the cuts made. At least the top ones you wouldnt know unless you were getting too close to the car 😉

Hello I'm new to this forum. I have a 99 LS400 which just had a timing belt replaced.  The belt is fitted correctly but the car has now developed a rough fluctuating idle.  Any ideas what caused this ? Thank you

Rough idle can be many things. Maybe the maf sensor needs cleaning, a vacuum line hasn't been put back on properly etc etc. Your better asking in the dedicated LS forums though.

Seems a bit odd to me that the car was running well prior to the cambelt change ............. did you have the belt changed by a good mechanic ok ?

I've just had mine changed and the old belt which had been replaced at Lexus in 2007 had been put on one tooth out of true and the ECU had re-adjusted to make the car run very well for 11 years/101k miles .....  Now the belt is spot on with alignment it runs even better than before ...........  just check again maybe on the guy who replaced the belt. 😐

I'll apologise now for the tapatalk app killing the picture quality but here we go.

 

I got some new exhaust tips put on the back end and got rid of the towing bracket. The rear bumper was also hanging down so tied that back up.

 

I've also now gotten a front table! Sent from the Netherlands Friday and was here the next Monday. How things can travel here over two non working days yet our post system can't even get a letter across a city without it taking a week is beyond me lol.

Almost a month later I have finally gotten hold of some interior goodies! Gave the interior the full JP treatment and must say it looks rather VIP now 4920181e25536702c0f22d964cc7503e.jpgedb35290bf38e00ae602ef40e166e40d.jpg2abe975be575a201addfd5fb0b4459eb.jpgd521da5f3b5444b7c5f2584ca45a1b00.jpg

Have also taken off the private plate that came with the car, and bought a new one to put on. However because I want to sell it I now have to wait for the new V5c to come through, which is a real pain in the backside!

Treated myself (or rather the 400 ) to some lovely resin plates to finish it all off2a5fbde7f0ff11db66d25bbf086cd0a1.jpg

Long time since an update but rest assured the car is still alive and Well!!

Not a great deal has happened over the past few months, however I have ordered some parts which arrived and some are still on the way.

I gained some LED rear lights from Japan and a fellow LS400 owner sold me his old wheels. The spacers that came with it were too big originally however I have now got better sized spacers and got the ride height to just about where I'd like it, enjoy the pics :)

Ohhhhh.... we’re getting a bit closer for a front fender harness tuck and some camber arms for the rear now.

Could I ask how much the rear clusters cost? I have a couple of spare sets and plenty of old LED TV screen to experiment with.

To be fair the rear has been cambered to the max on its stock setup and I had to grind a smidge of the arch back as one side was running and one wasn't. The rear quarter liner that sits along the outside is still screwed in though so you wouldn't know without an expert eye :) the front now does fit under the wings it didn't before but I don't plan on having to do a wire tuck as j don't want to go any lower than this whilst static.

I'd rather not disclose what I paid for these ones but I will say the only ones I've seen new are over 500 on eBay without postage! I did buy a second set of lights myself to make my own with but ended up getting these instead so I now have an extra box of shed ornaments

This is max rear camber on stock setup :) e8843e89d02d15c9a9a13907a88a5a35.jpg

Wow nearly 6 months since my last post! Apologies for not keeping this up to date, one thing leads to another and before you know it mods have been done but lots of time has passed!

 

I'm glad to say I've finally gotten air ride on my car and working! It drives incredibly well and very comfortable and I think looks the dogs bits when it's fully aired out!

 

I've also now gotten a proper debadged front grill, interior lace set, oem sunroof deflector (still got 2 spare for sale aswell :o )

 

I believe I've had the wooden steering wheel since my last post also, aswell as a set of oem jdm floor mats to match.

 

The retrofit headlights are also finally done and on the car! So close to completion and I'm very pleased with the outcome

 

It really has been a busy few months and here's a few pictures to enjoy!

 

[Edit: it's a shame the tapatalk app ruins the quality of these pictures, if you want some higher res ones, drop me a follow on Instagram! Connor2x4]

Thanks so much for posting that! I had a quick look on that video but didnt see myself at first glance. Theres been a few extra things added since I last posted here and this thread is well overdue an update. I'm due to drive it to Wörthersee in Austria next week, I'll definitely have updated it by then I hope!

 

EDIT:

 

I've just seen the video is part 2 and uploaded earlier today, I only looked at part 1!
