Top 5 Affordable Modifications
http://clublexus.com/how-tos is the leading Lexus IS, RX, ES, and GS resource for technical DIY guides. We've researched the top five affordable modifications among ClubLexus.com forum members. For the full article, please visit http://www.clublexus.com/how-tos/a/lexus-top-5-affordable-modifications-367 536 # 1 - LED Bulbs A minimal amount of skill, basic tools and a little time goes a very long way with this mod. Adding LED bulbs to various areas can easily be done, saving you a lot of money from having a professional do it for you. Interior kits can be purchased for your particular model, so tracking down each bulb part number is not necessary. Rear bulbs can be purchased individually to customize the color and level of illumination for each component. This is a great way to really give your car a unique look. Rear LED lights not only look great, but they increase your safety factor as well. # 2 - Carbon Fiber Dash Wrap Another popular modification is to wrap your dash in carbon fiber adhesive. You do need to have some nice skills and take your time. A rush job or cheap materials can make the end product look pretty cheesy. A professional is going to cost a good deal but the end result will be fantastic. You can wrap the entire dash, or just some of the components, like the center console and door trim panels. The various configurations allow you to make your car as unique as you like. If you can do it yourself, you will be extremely satisfied with how much you saved and how different it looks compared to the OEM dash. # 3 - Side Marker Tint One of the easiest modifications that you can do yourself in a matter of minutes is to tint any of your lights, in particular, the side markers. These can also be colorized in practically any color of the spectrum. The nice thing about tint is that it doesn't have to be permanent, and even subtle color changes really make your Lexus pop. If you get tired of a blue hue, you can change to a more dramatic yellow. The possibilities are endless and can make your Lexus stand out. # 4 - Blacked-out Headlights Nothing looks meaner on a Lexus than blacked out headlights. This is a pretty easy modification to do, although it takes a few hours. To get to the headlamps, you have to remove the bumper, which isn't difficult either; you just have to take your time and be careful that you don't scratch the bumper cover. You will need to bake the headlight case in an oven in order to melt the sealant holding the pieces together. You can then separate the pieces and paint the inside of the lamp hood black, and re-seal. This will take a few hours, but only a moderate skill set is needed to get the job done. The effort is definitely worth it when you implement the finished product. # 5 - Painted Brake Calipers Another affordable, easy DIY modification is painting your brake calipers. The difficult part of this job involves the length of time it takes if you use the traditional brush method. You'll need a few coats and to wait a day in between for it to dry. Several thin coats will create a clean and glossy look. If you don't have the time, you can use the spray method, which allows faster application because the time in between coats is greatly diminished. Spraying your calipers requires much more care, where as hand painting is less messy and allows for more detail. After the paint has dried, you can apply decals or even paint a design if you have the skills.
