Talking FrankyBoy Official Build Thread....Let's Gooooo.....

Hello Ladies and Gents!

It's now been a cool month and a half since I purchased my 2007 Lexus LS460 SWB (Short Wheel Base) from JM Lexus out of Florida and it's been an exhilarating experience being an owner to a car I've dreamed about owning since it's inception. It's also been a headache somewhat but Lexus has made the repairs seamless and a good experience as well. You can bet that means I had a ZERO balance when it was all said and done. LOL...

These pictures show off my ride before the the install of my Vossen wheels and Megan's coilover setup. Isn't she pretty!

Anyways, this thread will began my very own updates to customizing my old/new 2007 Lexus 460.

Anyways, Big ups to Elite Import Auto aka Chris Yi & Team for hooking my LS up and we're not done yet.

First off, here are some various other accessories and body parts that I've purchased.


Roof and rear spoiler from Ebay Seller.


Authentic Junction Produce Fusa and Knot from Japan


Receipt for Fusa and knot authenticity


Aighty then and moving on......

Damn Chris Yi and Crew! My car is looking OH SO LOVELY!

The transformation......
















Ok...So....I'm so elated right now ladies and gents! I almost had an orgasm when I saw my almost complete project! LOL..... Don't ban me!












Isn't she pretty?

I have to say ladies and gents! The Vossen wheels are more than I expected them to be and very happy with them. The Megan coilovers are in a league of their own as well. I didn't get to take any pictures of the coilover installation either. We have to still fine tune my suspension to my liking but so far so good and....I love the them!

More updates to come so keep checking back team!

FrankyBoy!

Let the comments begin!

Looks very nice. Are those Vossens 20" or 22"? How did the ride quality change when you put on the Vossens?

Here are some pictures that I snapped yesterday. You can now see the Fusa and Tsuna hanging. I have to adjust it again though to get it centered right though. LOL....
