Used during the Terminatrix introduction scene in T3, the unfortunate Lexus meets its end shortly into the movie in the vetrinary clinic's parking lot. Welly had a nearly perfect replica of the SC430 used in the movie; the only thing that was truly "wrong" was the interior.

Once disassembled, the interior was cleaned and all seams and mold lines were removed. Krylon provided the appropriate color for the seats and door panels, while I mixed up my own color for the woodgrain areas inside. The car was reassembled, and the body was polished to remove some imperfections from the factory. The movie-accurate license plates were created in Illustrator and printed onto label stock.
