Default jdotlim 2004 LS430 Build, Simple

Hey Guys,

I finally got one of my dream cars. I've always wanted to get into the VIP scene, always had a place in my heart for them. I came from owning a 2005 Honda S2000, which I loved. But sold due to it being small and not practical. I have a bulldog, and he does not fit in the front seat anymore. Anyways on to my fully stock 2004 LS430 Modern Luxury Package. I am not going to go super crazy with this build, at least that is what i say now. I bought this car at 94K, and none of the maintenance was done. Not even a week, I did the water pump, timing belt, thermostat, and coolant flush. I am going to change the rear diff, and tranny fluid next. Along with PS fluid and brake fluid.

Follow me on IG @jdotlim, I have not posted any photos of the build yet, but will soon!

Future Mods:
Airlift Performance Struts
Airlift V2 Management with Hardlines
Version Select Lip Kit
Not sure what wheels I want yet.

2004 LS430



My previous car 2005 Honda S2000

Ordered my Airlift V2 Kit last week, and it finally came in. Too bad i won't have time to install it until next week.

Test fitted some Auto Couture Magnifique. Fronts don't clear BBK, and rears sit on the tire. Not sure if I wanna keep these. Gotta add spacers in front.
