Started with a yellow Lexus and did a full body kit, hood, scoops, fake carbon fiber, twin spoilers, dual exhaust and 2 tone interior with custom seats. Of course it was repainted white with gold pearl added to the clear for effect and a tire and wheel swap with black painted, red trimmed wheels. Please for those of you who dont know me, I built this to match the customers... so dont critique it as to my ability..... its identicle to the customers.

Thanks for the look.

It looks sharp, John!
What do you use for the carbon fiber on the hood? Do you prefer some sort of wrap/decal or do you have a different technique for such details? Of course, if it's a trade secret, then by all means keep it secret.

Modified Japanese cars are not my cup of tea, but you did some absolutely brilliant work here. I really like the wheels, and the carbon fiber on the hood looks outstanding. Nice job!

cool. Looks really nice.

Do you have a picture of the 1:1?
I did have pictures of the real car to build the diecast version but I send them back with the customers replica. Also, since I mod diecast for people all over the world I rarely do a local project which means no chance to shoot the two together. Thanks for the comment.
