History
ig: @wali.rifai.... 5th owner (2nd long-term owner, 2nd/3rd/4th listed owners were dealers). Purchased in May 2018 with 138k miles bone stock with original paint and no bodywork (but not perfect by any means! there was a rust hole on the center-front edge of the hood and a dent on the driver side quarter panel with paint missing, and a cracked taillight 🤦‍♂️). But it cleaned up nice! The rest of the car after repairs is original paint, including the unrepaired hood in these beachside pics.

More pictures are in my album/gallery here: https://www.my.is/media/albums/qwkslvr-glamour-shots.3670/

Now you need some quarter panels back to the lights lol. Kinda like the Evo quarters, but like following the lines on the IS300. I'll have to do this to mine if I get a spare set of quarter panels.

Yes!! That's always been a wish of mine ever since I had an IS lol. It would look soooo nice with a box flare like an Evo/R34/Subie! Something like the rear of the BTCC Altezza widebody...

Or a proper box flare like the pics below from ig:

Or the box flare OG @guan_woodartist

134758

All of these are custom :(

Might be possible to start a custom panel from a set of Evo overfenders or quarter panels. The rear door is the trickiest part tbh. PartsShopMax is making an OEM-style +45mm proper full widebody kit and finishing up the design right now, it looks very exciting!

Damn, red car I was just about to post about. Its either that, or this. I def Plan on doing my front end like this. But maybe not fender flares anymore. I want molded look. I want to ask around for a
OG Neo V1 That I can do carbon fiber molds outta so I can have extras for my plans with other IS300's. I'd like to make and fast AF Lexus, but keep luxury in mind, like Dynamat and futuristic retro stock look inside.

TRD Neo V1 always.

I like those side skirts.

That's a vivid vision! For the moulded look, the Ascura Garage Shick V3 widebody is a great option. It comes with full replacement fenders, and proper full overfenders for the rear (instead of flares that only partially cover the panels).

Carbon fiber Neo V1? Put me on the list for that lol, that would look super nice in raw carbon!
