Default LBINTAB's LS460L build

So I've never even thought of doing a build thread. I did and intro thread in the Norcal section and a couple of progress posts along the way but I guess I'll put everything together in a new thread. I guess the reason why I want to do it now is because I had some major movement of my progress over the past couple of months. So here's a little story all about how my life got twisted turned upside down. I'd like to take a minute just sit right there of how I became this dude with an LS sittin on air...

Before I can show you where I am now I gotta show you where I've come from. Got the LS Dec of 2011. I looked for a while for a 460L without factory air and with out the rear climate control. Finally found one. The cars below I still own. MKIII Supra and a first gen Rx300. A lot of us here follow each other on Instagram and see my progress there. You guys actually check that more often than CL haha. So we all know where everyone's at.

Tinted the windows. Turned out great. 5% in the rear. I didn't tint the front windows. I don't need the drama.

Some where along the way I got a set of Vossen's from Nat. He's way ahead of me now but He's helped along the way. So now on to more recent things
Here's a shot from HIN this summer

After that show the car went to Impact Performance in San Francisco to have my Airrunner suspension and Elevel by Accuair installed. Very clean install!!

The car is coming along nicely. I played with the e-Level when it was complete...it makes me wonder, "Why didn't I get one". Damn...I should have got one.

Feels like stock again but better rebound and damping. Then I can lift and lower the car as I please without waiting.

"Without waiting" is a good way to put it. Two to three seconds on Air Runner versus 2-3 minutes on Data System. A lot of people think air rides like crap but it's a lot better than stock...just my opinion.

i see you remembered the intro to the Fresh Prince ... i still watch it myself, lol. car looks sweet, love the accu-air. i didn't opt for the stock air suspension for that reason. now that i moved to a new home my accuair - e level had to be put on the back burner, it's all good. i'll have it soon. your car turned out nice.
