Here will be shown my ongoing labour to convert an Lexus LS400 to a classic sports car.
- Triangulated spaceframe from mild steel square tubing.
- Unique GRP bodyshell with inspiration from 60-ties thru 2015.
- Front and rear axles from LS400.
- Engine 1UZFE mated to a manual gearbox.
Mindset when it comes to cost is:
+ Spend money if its needed to be right first time. Don´t redo due to crappy material.
+ Use as much hardware as possible from donor. Door hinges, door seals?, hood latch, sun visor arms, mirrors (in new covers) etc.....
