That looks really good! It's not over-done...just the way I like it. What really amazes me is how "normal" everything looks at your house. How far do you have to go before you see the areas that were hit by the tornado? 3-4 miles?

Thanks Rey. Now I just need to get my kit back so I can put it on!

And yeah it's crazy... My neighborhood is all peaceful and normal, but about 4-5 miles away is completely leveled.

It can be surreal at times. Things seem normal just hanging out here, you don't think about the tornado, and then you drive into town and it's like BAM. What the F*&R%# happened??

It's still shocking to see :jawDrop:

Thanks Em! The destruction is unreal in person. If you are in the right place you can clearly see the path it took. It's nuts!

I picked up the Koenigs over winter. They're 18x9 +35 and 18x.10.5 +41 but I have to run a 15mm up front to clear my LS400 calipers. And I may throw a 5mm spacer in the rear sometime! It wouldn't be a probably for me to add a little camber since I'm running less than -1* in the back :p

I'm looking forward to refinishing them over the winter though. They look good from far but are far from good lol.

Nice last few pics man!
Thank you!

I'm just ready to get my kit on! I can't wait for full Vertex!

Thanks! But I already have some, I actually went through 2 different sets :lol: Ichiba V2's wouldn't fit with my Koenig's, so I had to buy a set of V1's.



EDIT: I've bought a few small things the last couple days. Nothing big though.
  • Redline MT-90 Tranny Fluid
  • Redline 75/90 Gear Oil
  • Brand New OEM Black Carpet Floor Mats
  • Genuine Lexus CW Touch Up Paint
  • Mad TYTE JDM License Plate Bracket
  • OEM Intake Air Filter
Should be getting those parts all in next week, and hopefully dropping my car off at the body shop.

I need to get out and by some fresh bolts for my engine bay/license plates, but I've been lazy. Driving through town SUCKS with all the destruction. I'll do that eventually.

And I need to take my cooling plate to be powder coated. I've had it off for seriously 4 months at least. I just haven't got out to the shop.

I'd like to say that's basically all I'm going to have going on this summer, but I know something will come up. There's just too many parts I'd like to have :lol:

I may be getting a hook up on one or more parts too :cool: That probably won't be for another week or two though. I'm excited to see how it plays out though! As always, I'll update when I can.

And I hardly take pictures of my interior, but I took some today. I'll post them eventually lol.

:lol: Whatever. Those guys keep me safe when I'm doing stupid stuff! And yes, they were gifts from my GF lol.

At least the bat matches. It goes great with my black interior and amber lights :p
