Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content

hi everybody, if you read my previous thread some of u may know that i acquired a 1995 Lexus ls400 In very dark green.,

it has 95k town driving on it and has full service history. ( lexus up2 around 85)

anyway there was not much required to get this car to a very good state. alternator was knackered, so that was replaced. spark plugs were also done. so that is the engine running very well.

next is a just a general tidy up. as we know lexus alloys corrode like anything so, after discussing with my brother whether to just get some is200- 17" alloys, we both agreed to refurbish the current alloys our self.

here are some before during and after pics.

^ that is the second wheel getting prepped.

so we are cracking on with the car and all that is left to do after finishing the wheels is. buy 2 new tyres.

and i am getting a professional in to valet the car inside out. wet vacuum e.t.c and swirl removal on the outside.

then there is a small hole in the exhaust that is getting puttyed tomorrow, if that fails then off 2 get it welded.

then the car will be finished.

the car will be used by my brother to eat up the motorway miles so he can keep his mk1 gs300 sport for the weekend.

i will keep you all updated in this thread as and when things happen.

thanks for reading.

Anuj.

Interesting read. I plan to refurbish the alloys on our LS400 soon. They are not as bad as yours, but could do with a little TLC.
