  1. De-badging. Is it naff?

    Hi, Well after doing some research into removing the badges from my LS460, I'm in the understanding that there are no locating pins on the badges so they'll becoming off asap. People will still know its a Lexus by the center L badge, i'm just removing the 'Lexus' & 'LS460' from the rear as i think they make it look cluttered & messy.
  2. De-badging. Is it naff?

    I think when it comes to de-badging there are a few factors to consider : Can they be stuck back on if need be, Where the badges are located, What type of badges are you removing (Make / Model / Variant). I'm going to remove the 'Lexus' & 'LS460' badges from the boot of my new acquired LS460 as i prefer the clean & uncluttered look.

  5. Hi, I've got a 1999 gs300 mk2 sport.I've fitted the 2001 facelift rear lights but when checking to see if everything is working ok.It seems that the taillight and brakes light are on the same bulb.Why would this be and what would i need to do to get them working in the right way. 1999 rear lights have the reverse and indicator in the middle of the light. 2001 facelift lights are the ones where the reverse and indicator are at the bottom of the light. I've had a look on the site and they seem to be going on about harnesses etc but i haven't a clue what they mean by harnesses. Thanks Snakes
