It’s around 12:30 A.M here in Cali and this Monday were bringing you something special to kick off your week in the right direction. Let us introduce you to Adrian and his crazy TL. Arguably one of the cleanest TL’s we have EVER laid eyes on!
We all have those nights sitting on the computer with a bowl of Ramen and checking your local forums when you start to think about your perfect ride and how it’ll look. Will when your imagination runs wild your start to think about crazy ways you can get closes to perfection and you end up with this!
Let’s start out by letting everyone know that this car was widened four inches on each side to fit its insane offset. When it comes to offset, try -40 up front with 19×9’s and -32 with 19×10’s in the rear! What really makes this car special is that it’s still on coils!
When we spoke to Adrian about his future plans he told us he’s actually going lower next week and he’s planning a supercharger and probably a set of air cups up front to get over obstacles on the road since he daily’s this beast.
After getting to know Adrian we asked him why he picked this platform to really go all out, he told us since he was 16 he always wanted a TL. He also let us know that this build would not have been possible without all his great friends at the Vipstylecars community for the inspiration and encouragement to go through the whole build and Freddie at AutoFashionUSA. Sean at JDM Palace, Grant at Fresh Like Sushi and last but not least Andy and his family at Masters Autobody for being able to do any bodywork or paint job that you can think of!
Now let’s get to the photos. Make sure to drop us line and let us know what you think about this Game Changer! As always check back frequently as we always bring the freshest content to your screen! Be sure to peep the modlist at the bottom of the feature.
