The long waited build for myself

Hi everyone, im fairly new here, I bought a 2002 lex is300 in August of, 2018 it has slight damage to front see pics, I have plans for it of course. Main reason I bought the car was that it's been swapped with a 2jzgte. It has a 5spd r154 trans, Here's some pics of what I had to fix so far.

1 photos, found a way to fix sticky dash issues. Wiped it down with acetone to a bare grey plastic. Then taped it off and spayed it with aerosol can, turned out like new.

2 photos I bought some motegi wheels 18x9.5 square setup. Installed with 265 35 18 conti's hopping it'll hook up decent with these to put the power down.

Fender flares temporary install to check fitment with wheel tire set up

That's it for now, she's currently at a frame shop to get that all straightened out. The rest I fix myself. I can keep this post going if anyone is interested. Thanks for looking

Just one more thing, got these in the mail recently, braum racing seats. Love them cant wait to install these. But that will be last step after car is painted and cleaned. Planing to paint the entire car custom color. Stay tuned

I believe it was acrylic paint that I used that is suitable for plastic.

Got some updates guys! Finally got my car back from the frame shop, my friend did a nice job pulling it out. We had to replace one frame rail. This is how it looks so far. Got smoked headlights and installed a front lip spoiler. Also installed this aluminum radiator with built in fan shroud. It's a cheap ebay product looks good we will see how it holds up! Next project will be trying to install front fender flares to hide them beffy tires. Last pic, was working late! Had to install the radiator to actually run the car with out worrying about over heating issues!
Stay tuned for more updates thanks guys!

Got done with my project car, went with a rocket bunny kit imported from russia.

Done all the work myself installed the kit, fixed all the body work. Primed and painted the car matte Mercedes AMG c63 gray. Plastic dip my wheels installed pin stripes.

Nothing done to the motor it was already swapped with 2jzgte aristo with r154 trans. Running 18lb boost.

What you guys think?

Is this the color to match the 2001 dash? I just bought a 2001 dash yesterday and was trying to figure out what color I could spray the window switch trim to match it
