I'll third black calipers with white sticks... yeah white stickers why not!

I do really like those wheel, and the blue lug nuts are awesome. Hell, paint your calipers that blue color, might look good?!

^^ That sounds good. I vote that too. Blue calipers to match the lugs with bronze stickers!

i had been thinking of painting my calipers black.. and trying to get blue decals. but ive got a ton of other things going on right now. its on my to-do list though!

but black with white, bronze, or blue decals????
or should i look into the blue with bronze or white decals?

that was my first choice. they would be done already but i was in a rush to get paint and the only way it would come out close was to paint them chrome first then put this blue paint over it.that was going to be more expensive than i wanted it to be.

and there will be updates this weekend! hopefully a teaser tomorrow night!

did you say your mom's car is now completely stock after messing up a rim? Your mom customizing her's? that's pretty awesome. What rims did she have?

i would go with black calipers since you have a lot more black going on the car now. i would paint the housings on the side markers white and get clear lenses. Or just paint them imo....

the blue one was mine. and then i got the white one. i put some ADR M-Sports on the blue car when i had it and my mom had been driving it like that. then she busted one so its all stock. so she doesnt really mod it but.. she does want to get another rim so we can but the ADR's back on lol.

and i have since painted my head lights and fog lights back and done some JDM style turn signals so i think the amber side marker looks cool...

here's some recent ones with my Blitz Nur Spec, painted heads, fogs, and grill. even though i'll have new pics this weekend!!

That's cool your mom wants the ADR's back lol

And your right. The headlights do make the side markers a lot more suitable.

lookin clean so far. Keep it up!

Looking good, now clean your car and post some daytime pics :approve:

If you haven't already painted your calipers, I suggest black with white logos.

Here's mine (but with silver decals)

has any one tinted the third brake light on the spoiler? im thinking it would look better red...

The pictures didn't turn out the greatest but thats ok. im not satisfied with the exterior of my car yet. so when i finally get it done i'll get some better quality pictures.

but now i'm working on fixing my l-sporstline grill, getting my tail lights, and painting my calipers. OH and redo-ing my emblems. (any one have a rear "L", "Lexus" and "IS 300" for sale??)

then i have to decide if i want JDM window visors and/or a ugo roof spoiler...

then once my exterior is done its on to my turbo kit. ive got the majority of my kit now. im just slowly piecing everything together :)

and at some point i want to get some 18x9's in the rear... or new rims all together. and LSD.

anyway. this should be it for my updates for awhile. its almost winter here so i wont be doing much..
