Decided I had better put all of this in one area that is easy to find..
Build over view:
The build is more for a daily driver and not getting too radical or changing up too much that will Make the vehicle difficult to drive and enjoy.
We are at the point in our lives where we need a 4 door more for the convenience and the luxury than we need it for the baller status.. LOL
The wifee will drive this car on an average of only a few miles per week as she works from home but it will be the primary cruiser used on the weekends when we are not in the Beastly Z06.
Stance is important so to not beat a dead horse we will need to get the car at the right level that will be pleasing to the eyes. An air suspension module should do the trick here and still give us the flexability to drop it when needed and cruise at the stock height on long trips. The windows will all be tinted except the front. Looking at 30% all around. What build could be called a build without new shoes. In my own Eye this car needs 22's to look correct and fill up that big wheel well with the proper height and width to look clean and still carry an executive attitude. The body will need a few items to keep the lines flowing correctly and give a little touch of sport. A new roof and trunk spoiler color matched and the right lip will complete the exterior. On the inside the car is used so it will need new floor mats a detailed shampoo and cleaning. The factory sound can stay as is with an upgrade for Ipod and Iphone compatability with the possibility of streaming music via bluetooth. Their will always be the small items to come but this is the major items for this build.
2008 LS460L in Smoky Granite Mica exterior and light gray leather with ash gray wood toned interior. Premiere Package.
First things first is the ride height...
Well the first of the Mod parts showed up ..
Pretty fast shipping and packaged very well..
Read the instructions in about 5 minutes and started to get set up for the install...
Disconnect the negative on the battery..
First was to get the brand new packing blanket out to cover the seat and floor.
The instructions say to pull off the trim pieces being careful to pull them off in a straight motion so that the clips are not damaged.
I like to use the trim tools designed for this type of work
I wrapped up the trim pieces in clean micro fiber cloths to avoid scratches and damage
The small panel next to the knee air bag takes quite a bit of pressure to remove..
It does provide access to one of the 10mm bolts that need to be removed..
Glove box comes off with 5 screws like this.. 2 bottom 3 top
You can see I se all of these on the floor because they have wires connected to them and you never want to disconnect the air bags.. Just put some soft cloths between the pieces so nothing gets damaged..
At last we find what we have been looking for
Disconnect the plugs and start plugging in the harness
There is a hole in the back of the glove box that you can put the cable for the controller in
Put everything back in the reverse order
After I reconnected the battery and touched the start button.
And the unit is installed
Total time including stopping to take pics along the way 40 mins
Followed the instructions and set the system up with 5 pre sets of differing combinations...
