I bought this 92 Lexus LS400 two years ago and I am just now
starting to do some minor modifications. It has 143,000 miles and I haven’t had anything wrong with it yet. My ride is sitting on 17 inch Fox 3 Sport
Edition Rims, that are wrapped in Kuhmo Ecsta ASX rubber. They aren’t twenties but they fit nicely and
compliment the silver on my car. I am
thinking about going with some Eibach springs to lower the gap in between the
wheel well. I replaced the ugly ass
amber corner lights with some clears and I really like the way the clears look
on my car. I am going to get some JDM
taillights in the near future. I got rid
of the ugly yellow lenses that make the fog lights shine yellow. They are much brighter and I can run them at
all the time at night. I have a Celsior
emblem on the way. The 1st
generation LS400’s don’t have a model emblem and I figured that a Celsior
emblem would set it off real nice. My
next mod will be painting the calipers and drums. I think I will paint the calipers in red and
the drums in black.
I added an Aiwa CDC-X227 so I can hook my 20gig 4G ipod
directly to my headunit. All the
speakers are stock except for a 8” Bazooka tube. The sound is good and I am really impressed
because I didn’t spend a whole lot for the setup. I also have a 12 disc pioneer cd changer in
the trunk. My leather seats are thrashed
so I am in desperate need of some seat covers. I just don’t want to settle for the tacky seat covers that most people
have. I would rather have cracked
leather seats than some nasty seat covers. I need to get some new floormats but they can wait.
I am giving out gmail invites to anybody that wants them. Email me at tarrmachine at gmail dot com to request one.
Also, I have been hooked on diet mountain dew for sometime now. Apple is having a promotion where you can win free songs by purchasing 20 ounce bottles. I have been buying them like crack and I have got about 10 free songs so far. Do you have a cap but have no intentions of getting the free song? If so I will take it. Thank you very much.
I really messed up my ipod a while back by trying to brush the aluminum on it. Big mistake. I did it with a dremel and I really botched the finish on it. It looked bad and the aluminum just looked cloudy instead of having that pretty brushed finish. I figured that there was nothing else that I could do, so I just hid it in my blue iSkin case. The ipod is sexy to keep hidden in a case all the time, so I decided to try out some GS27 on it. GS27 is a scratch remover for paint, plastic, and metals. You can find it online and at most hardware stores. I bought it to remove some unsightly scratches on my car and it did a pretty good job. I have so many small scratches it is going to take me forever to locate and remove them.
I have also used GS27 to remove scratches from plastic coated wood that accents the interior in my car. It worked and I got it looking new again. I decided, why not try it on my ipod? My ipod is pretty much a permanent fixture in my car; I only move it to the center console so it won’t attract thieves. I have it connected to my car stereo through and AUX input jack and it sounds excellent.
The scratches on the ipod were so bad that you could barely even see a reflection. I got out some gs27 and smeared it all over the back of the unit. I took some soft paper towels that don’t tend to scratch, and I started buffing it in a circular motion. The paper towel turned black, I am not sure if it was from dirt or it is actually taking off some of the bad finish. I wasn’t worried about messing it up because it already looks bad. After I got it buffed and polished it looked ten times better. I repeated the process about 4 times and it is starting to look new again. There are still a bunch of tiny scratches, but they could probably be removed with more buffing and polishing. I also used it on the front and on the screen. It took out a bunch of tiny scratches that were on the screen.
I also used GS27 on my wedding ring and my wife’s engagement ring. Both of the rings were restored to their original shine and luster. This stuff would also be good for removing scratches from iBooks.
