Default chrispy's Build Thread

As you guys probably already know, I sold my GS430 and bought myself an LS430. I miss the GS a lot but the LS is on a different level.

This build thread will be slow.

Here's when I first got it.

First thing I did was swap out the stock air suspension for coilovers. Headed down to Parts Shop Max in San Diego for testing.

Couldn't lower the front until I got home since my fenders weren't rolled yet.

I got a set of Celsior fog lamps from Japan.

They come with a yellow glass capsule just like the fogs on the GS as well as a parking light. I turned it into a turn signal.

I had my Junction Produce Scara wheels in 19" from my GS so I threw those on after rolling and shaving my fenders.

I like them a lot but it's time for something new. They are for sale.

That's it for now!

Sup man, looking good!!! I pm'd you on vsc but your inbox is full.


Nice celsior lamps I had no Idea. Thought about putting yellow bulbs in my fogs since the stock white does not match the head light. **** bugs the hell out of me. The scaras actually look good. I thought about getting the newer 19 reverse lip scaras and stepping them to a 20".

Sorry! That forum never tells me when it's almost full. I cleared some stuff out so try again. You can always do HID fogs to match the headlights. I thought about doing that too with the Scaras too but that's a lot of money.

Thanks! Not yet they are still for sale. Tried to figure out which coils I would like more but need to get rid of the other set right now.

Thanks! You should buy them! I thought they would be too small at first but I like them.
