How about an SC300 progress/photo-whore thread?
Tuesday, May 22, 2012 5:39 PM
As, most, of you know, I have been without a J since last September, and this 99 SC300 is my new muse. Since I got it, I've added 6000K/3000K HIDs, BC coilovers, staggered 19" Stance SC5 wheels, and HIC rear window visor, and a few other details. I've currently got my eyes on a new axleback exhaust system and a new hood (hail damage from the previous owner). We'll see where the road takes me.
Day 1:



And present day:
Since my last post about the new wheels I have since added some 5mm spacers all around onto the car. I only had a few pics posted randomly since the drop, so this is the first 'shoot' since then. I'm happy with the car's stance as is, and I don't really plan on going much lower, at least without doing fender work. I've got my eyes on the Top Speed axleback exhaust and fixing a few minor things are higher on the priority list. Also, just upgraded my DSLR to a Canon 60D, so I'm breaking it in and figuring it out. These are just a few that I've edited so far, I'll add some more as I finish! Comments and criticism are welcome!

Thanks! And these are the first set of coils I've ever had, so I don't have much to compare to, but I like them! Got the drop I wanted, and I can still go MUCH lower, ride is nice too.

Thanks! I love them too. I wasn't sure about the fronts at first, seeing that they're not as concave, but I love them now.

Thanks! Glad you guys approve!

And I saw this little white 'vert the other day and it made me miss my old car a bit... definitely did not miss that fender gap though....


And while it may not appear that low, my front bumper will argue...


And as an added bonus, the SC next to a red '53 Chevy pickup slammed on some nice Torq Thrust wheels


and an unedited shot...

Haha, I did too! the patina and rust was cool, haha. I'd want to make it look perfect if I owned it, but it was still super cool. And thanks!

I got my new exhaust in and installed today! The Pro 1/Pro Speed eBay one, and I love it! It's a little quiet, so I may have the cat back re-done and resonators deleted...


The old and busted 13 year old set up!




And the new, shiny set up!




Got lunch sans mufflers, it was a little loud, lol



And the new ones installed!



And the videos (pardon the iPhone quality) without mufflers and with the new ones installed.
