Thnks for the props Crestor and yes it's no different than putting on the body kit but my thought was not to clone a iS F but just to kind of simulate one. I'm still tossing around the idea of the fender and side skirts and doing the wald rear lip and jdm lip spoiler or the wald lip spoiler. This project was just a trial and im glad it worked and i also thank all of u that give positive feedback on it, i also understand that tastes are different and people do have the rt to voice there opinions especially here, but it was also said by a wise person "One mans pile of crap may be another mans treasure". Ok so bad analogy but u get the drift. I will say though if anyone smokes tints there headlights make sure u got HID'S because shit u cant see if u got stock bulbs. LOL.
I would love to see the IS-C swap i almost did it and at the last minute i changed my mind. Really could u imagine if a IS-f owner did that, but it would be alot more work then the swap i did the due to the wider fenders.Look good, can't wait to see the final product. Now we need someone to do the IS-C bumper conversion for comparison.
Now IS-F guys will do the ISX50 conversion for the ultimate sleeper,lol.
I can only speak personally for I am not probably the general consensus nor do I claim to be.Karasha... why do people put on body kits? Why do people buy rims (for cosmetic purposes)? Why do people put on spoilers?
It's not because people want to fool people into thinking their car is a different one... some people just want to change the look of the car.
Great job, that's what I've always thought about the IS-F in parts relation, Its the same as the ISX-50 minus the larger tranny tunnel but everything else should be bolton.Ok so to answer Crester's question we did not stretch the fenders at all not metal work was done to the vehicle we actually just shrunk the bumper with heat then relaxed it with ice cold water it worked out great i just picked up from body shop now i just gotta wire the fog lights 2maro and get brighter headlight bulbs cause i don't have HID'S!
Second answer no i don't have a ISF but the look of the bumper is great, although i could have bought one but i live in illinois and driving that vehicle in the winter is not great and to buy it as a summer car wouldn't be the car for that. I understand that putting this on my flag as a poser but all i wanted to do was do something different and that's what i thought even though the ISC bumper is very sleek looking and would make a great swap also i chose the ISF one little pricey after all but not really that bad. Again thanks everyone for the feedback on the swap and i made another thread with all the part #"s i used to do so.
Have a happy and safe holiday season
