Default iVtecTypeS's 2004 Black/Saddle UL Build

Start of my LS430 project. This will be a slow build as I juggle the funds for bills, baby, wifey and the car.

This was my previous project which now collects dust in the garage...

Came up on 19x9 et21, 19x10 et31 Wed Bazreia's for $1500. Lips had some curb love and the chrome was slightly peeling on one face. I didn't mind much since I'm going to refinish them.

Rear fitment

Front fitment

19's are too small unless I ride slammed, for a daily fambam car, its not practicalI. 20's are perfect for the 430 and my friend had 20" barrels from some Orden's laying around so i did a mock fit.

Same specs as the original 19" configuration but in 20x9 2.5" lip

Rear 20x11 with 3.5 lip . Original lip size was 3" I would have gone with a 4" in the rear but that would put me in the single digit offset which is too aggressive for my taste. I want to retain as much of the stock body lines after pulling.

Next thing is suspension. I need to make a decision asap cause that will have to go on first before I put on the wheels. Im debating between ASC680L for now, or going straight to Coilovers then eventually either an Aircup system or UAS with accuair or AirRex .

**Update 5/28/14**

Decided to run the Data System as a temporary solution until I decide on what suspension route i'll take. Bout the unit used from another member here. Thanks deejayrock.

I was gonna fab something up where the 6 disc changer is but decided to put it here since this is only a temporary solution

Rims finally completed jut need to mount tires. Anyone in San Diego looking to have their wheels re-finished/re-built hit my homie up Ronnie (instagram: Wheelbuilt_Ronnie). Good guy, great work, very reasonable prices and best of all he's located in SD .

Fronts

Coming next is rolling the fronts and either shave/pull or roll/pull the rears. Once thats done, the wheels go on... So excited

That interior color is amazing, I couldn't find one when I was looking for a car. Can't wait to see the wheels and suspension on.

Both cars awesome, I have a black on black. When I was looking I almost bought a black on saddle, nice combo. I like the choice in rims also, should look good.

Ready to see fitment on those bad boys. I'm trying to figure out exactly what I want to run when I get started. I'm not a fan of body work and want to keep stock lines as much as possible also. Looking good

**Update 6/15/14**

Front fenders didn't need anywork to fit, the natural camber cleare, I only needed the rears rolled to clear so I took the risk... I should have shaved but I was too scared to risk the structural integrity of the 1/4. There are only two places that dimpled slightly (10 o'clock and 1 o'clock position) but I'm **** to detail and it bugs the crap out of me. I'm going have them shaved completely flat and re inforce them by having them welded. Thats what I did when I cut the RSX rears.

In my opinion, fitment is perfect no obnoxious camber or hellaflush stance (no offense to anyone, just not my style). Its flush and functional. I like having a symmetrical car and i want the camber in front and rear to match so next on the to-do list is suspension arms and a youzealand ss pro kit. That probably means I would either have to dial in more neg camber in the fronts (via youzealand kit) or slightly pull and add positive camber to the rears.

**update 9/4/14**

I had a friend who had a ebay badge-less grill that didn't fit his 01-03 LS sitting in his garage for a few years. Put it on and left it chrome for a few weeks but it was too much bling for me, so I painted it black to match the car. When I went to pepboys to pick up paint I notice dupli-color had oem paint in a can. Found the 202/204 color code and picked up some clear aswell. Color looks good and seems to match. This will hold me over until I have it sprayed at a shop when I get misc thing fixed on the car.
