Considering the mods on your current car, I'm definitely looking forward to that day!

Been a while since I've posted about my car, but after a really long hiatus, my car is finally getting the Aimgain GT over fenders installed at Signature Autobody here in Orange, CA - and my new wheels are arriving from Japan soon.

I know I saw a pic of these on a Mercedes earlier this year (no more than a few sets of these here in the US), but I'm pretty excited to be getting a set of these myself, 21" BBS LM-R:

Damn, those wheels are so nice. My new set will be similar to this but made by Work. Excited to see the progress on your LS.

Nat you're picking up all the wheels in Work's wheel catalog faster than they can release new wheels. I was on the fence for such a long time (and still kind of am) on ordering a set of work wheels with the bronze anodized barrel just because it looks so nice.

Just a quick update, just received a couple pictures from the good folks over at Signature Autobody, over fenders installed, new wheels mounted up:

Thanks, few more small little things to finish it off, but I'm really happy with the outcome as well. The guys over at Signature Autobody definitely went over and beyond my expectations putting this together for me.

Unfortunately because these wheels aren't rebarreled (yet) the widths/offsets offered from BBS Japan are extremely limited. This particular set is a square set up with 21x10 +35 all around.

These are the only two sizes offered by BBS Japan:

21inch PFS = ハブリング仕様

TYPE SIZE INSET H/P.C.D PFS/BORE WEIGHT PRICE Without tax REAR TUNER
LM 325 219.0 32 5/120.0 PFS 12.4kg 225,720 209,000 ●
LM 326 2110.0 35 5/120.0 PFS 12.8kg 232,200 215,000 ● ●

Seeing what you did with your SC430, I'm excited to see what you have planned for your LS

Thanks! For those who are on the fence about deciding on whether or not they want to do over fenders - finding a bodyshop qualified to do the work is the utmost importance. The bodyshop in this case are the real artists. Tons of work goes into "making these fit".

After seeing MrMark's car at SEMA, there are definitely differences between the way mine are installed and the way MrMark's are installed; however, there is no "right way" of installing these because at the end of the day, these were not meant for our cars.

Thanks Nat. How're those new headlights coming along? Haven't seen your car since SEMA, any big changes coming for this year?
