Hey guys! I havent been on this forum for awhile just because I didnt have anything new to share about my car. Recently I redid the whole car from Black to a Maserati Pearl White, sold my Aimgain fenders and did a custom metal widen front fenders with functional vents and also widen the real quarters to fit my new Avant Garde F531. Ended up painting my LS600 Hybrid grill with some gloss black & matte black to give it that aggressive look im going for. The Aimgain spoiler in the rear was molded on to the car which I think completes the car.

Ended up selling the Luxury Abstract Jungo just because I think 22's make it look more of a DUB car and also I love the way the 21's sit on the LS460, gives it a real clean look and fills up the wheel gap for the Futura BBKs I had, also I think its more "BALLER" to say I got 21s just because not a lot of people have them LOL . The fronts are 21x11.5 + 3 and rear are 21x13 -8, all body work is done at DTMAutoBody in South El Monte CA.

While it was at the shop during the 5 months I ended up getting my engine cover airbrushed with some gangster movie character theme im going for. Airbrushed portraits of Goodfellas, American Gangster, & Scarface. Added some plexi and lighting to give it a different look overall I think it came out excellent. On the hood I added a Garson hood spoiler to finish off the aero's on the car, still have some more ideas planned on the exterior but will see later through the year on what im going to add.

The headlamps were disasembled to paint the chrome housing black to give it more of a aggressive look, I was originally going to tint them black but I remembered I hated how the visibility is at night and since my front windshield is tinted it would been a bad idea so went with the legit route and took them apart. While doing so I added some chasing lights on the DRLs and also made a custom eyebrow on the car to give it more of a aggressive look as well all the work was done by my boy Tuan IG @tnautoinspired check him out. The rear exhaust tips are new as well, make it look like quads even thou its not :P the exhaust tips are from Aimgain International, heres couple pictures hope you guys like them please add me on IG @styleoverpolitics or @sop_diamondjim.

Car looks stunning! I really like how everything is put together. Love the hood and fenders, very GT-VIP. How hard was it to bake the lights apart? I have been wanting to do some mods to the headlight but fear issues with re-assembly.
