so i picked up a very clean 2 owner '01 IS300 in auburn sky pearl, I always wanted an asp IS because its a such a rare beautful color and i never seen a clean one before so hopefully this will be a very clean ASP. the car needed a new paint job so i decided to buy a modelliista kit since I've always one, and i picked up a set of used worked cr kai for a very cheap price, wheels need some tlc so i decided to powder coat them in a custom gold and add OG work cr kai decals. I also had a set of dark housing altos headlights that i got buffed out to take of all the yellowing. so here she is comment and lmi what you guys think!

when i picked her up

Nice, though maybe i cant see what was wrong with the original paintwork to need a respray. I still like the Modelista kits, not that common but also a nice subtle look to the cars. ?

Did you manage to pull that huge dent in the rim out? :oops:

the wheels are flawless now, i had to blend too many panels in order for the paint to match so i decided to paint the entire car

It looks beautiful! I completely agree that the modelista is just rare and divine. I saw in one of your pics on the driver side rear lip seemed to be coming off a little.
