    Well, last Friday I went and picked up a 99 RR Green 100. 100k miles, all records, rear diff, rear ac, no sunroof. I have had the car for 6 days now and I have driven my wifes car to work 2 of the 6 days. She has already taken it over.

    To do list
    1. Replace alpine single disc cd player with repaired factory radio - cd player is fixed and will be reinstalled today
    2. Order husky liners - Done
    3. Tires - This is where I know you guys are going to kill me but for the next 3 years, I will be running stock 275/70 r16's. The height of this stock cruiser is perfect for loading and unloading our children. When they can climb in themselves, 285's will be installed - Next Week
    4. Order change holder cup thing for the spot where the ahc controls go on the lx470
    5. Install Sunroof - 2 to 3 weeks away
    6. Clean and condition leather - Done

    100's are great and this board is great.

    Glad to be back. Hopefully one day I can get the 100 back to drive.

    A piece at a time...that's how mine is going along also. Thanks to all the good advice given to me by members of this board I purchased a '99 100 this year also...no regrets. You're going to really rely on this great resource we call IH8MUD. Welcome aboard!

    I am years away from making this into a Off Highway 100. Will get more lights then.

    How much was the powdercoat and sandblasting on your lexus wheels?

    sure you want to install a sunroof? seems like a dubious proposition between the cost, leaks etc

    I honestly can't remember. Somewhere in the range of I think $45 or $50 a piece?

    Had them done here: www.actionpowdercoat.com

    Nice work.

    Which newb are you welcoming?

    Action Powdercoat is located at 105 Verdi Street Farmingdale, NY 11735, just like it says on their website. :rolleyes:

    If you've got a 100 series with stock wheels, not sure what kinda rust you've got on your wheel since they are alloy.
