Parts are starting to pile up at the shop for our project cars and we have some major updates on my IS300 wagon build! Phil and Kristian also stop by to hang out while Yuta is begins work on his DC5 RSX “Fun Car” and then we take you to one of the first big events for us out here in Los Angeles; the return of Chronicles & Coffee for the first time in 2020. I really wish I would have filmed more during the meet but it got WAY too hectic and I found myself trying to organize more than I was able to shoot!

Rodney, His Dog, & A 1JZ-Swapped Cressida…CHRNCLS Vlog 2020 #17 (w/Photos)
I haven’t figured out what to call this series of videos yet, some have suggested some interesting names, but I’m just glad everyone seems to be enjoying them! This week, we head over to Zero Auto Factory where Yuta is doing an install on our friend Steve Nakamura’s Lexus IS200T, and then Rodney Moenadi, another good friend of our’s, cruises by the shop to show us his 1JZ-GTE powered Toyota Cressida drift car!
Noel’s Varis FR-S Turbo & We Finally Work On My IS300…CHRNCLS Vlog 2020 #16
Man, there have been a lot of red cars popping-up at the shop lately… On this episode, we finally pull my collection of Japanese Altezza parts that I’ve been collecting over the years out of storage to install on my IS300 Sportcross. A Zero Auto Factory prototype vented hood came over stateside recently so we had to make sure it fit on U.S.-model IS300s because of the 2JZ-GE engine we have here. A few days after that, my good friend Noel Barnum came by to hang and chat so we do a deep dive into his incredibly well-built Varis widebody FR-S which is equipped with a GReddy turbo kit.
