Default My 04 LS430 (ongoing project)

Hey everyone. I posted up pics of my car a while back when it was pretty much stock (only had my friends HRE's on it). I promised myself I wasn't gonna mod it for a while but you know how that goes. I figure I'd post pics of my progress thus far.

Before and after Fabulous grill:





Stock vs. Fabulous:


Etched Fabulous on grill (heard this is only on the UCF31's):



Before Drop:



Droppped on Tein CS:





I have a set of Junction Produce SS kit on it's way. They're drop brackets which allow the car to drop an extra 1.5" all around. Right now the CS's are fully cranked all the way down. Next up after that will be a kit. Not sure what I wanna get right now though.

Thanks man.

I can get the JP kit no problem. Not sure who to get the Youzealand kit from. I'm wondering if the same manufacturer makes the ss kit and JP and Youzealnd rebadges them and pays royalties. I know this is what JP does for alot of there stuff.

It started to rain right in the middle of my grill install and I was out on the street while doing it. It's all clean now.

looks real good and simple.

Are the HRE's 19's or 20's? They look real good on the car especially if they are 19's!

keep up the good work,
JP

you zealand makes the kit for jp. jp just sells it through their company and makes some money off of it. i just got my late last year and have not had a chance to put it on my car. will send pics once i get a chance to install it on my 03 ls430.

Thanks everyone. They are 19's. Actually borrowing from a friend who frequents this board (aloha03gs). It came off of his GS as he's selling his ride.

I am shooting for 20's but after I pick up a kit.

I wished the Tein CS dropped the rear as low as your photoshop rendition.

Actually, I think he might give it to his mom. Almost all his parts were parted out.

He's looking into picking up a 335i or M3.

Sorry for resurecting such and old tread but I figured since I started this tread with pic of my car earlier in the year, you all can see what it is today...or at least what it was this past weekend at our annual car show.

I can't ride around with the lip kit so I need to get me some air now. Damnit!!! I sooo wanted to avoid it.

But here's a pic (theres more out there this and other forums) but I'm too lazy to look for them (and I did not take this pic).

maybe coils so that you can adjust the height? cos it looks niiiiiiiiice at that height
