Default EMPIRE Vip Family JZS147 Build

Sup guys, haven't posted in a minute. Sold my LS400 awhile back but my wife has had her 93 GS300 since 2006.. never did mod it much besides the Universal Air Suspension and changing up wheels but nothing crazy. I recently got my hands on a homie's old set of wheels..
some of you may know him as "Mista808" on this Forum. The wheels are his custom set of AME ax's from his devil's LS400 build a few years ago.. surprisingly they are in excellent condition even after going through 3 different owners on hawaii's messed up roads. After fitting the wheels , the car is soon under going bodywork and a full color change along with a jdm front grille, headlights, tail lights and 3 piece wing...still need to source up a front bumper and find an exhaust system. Just thought i would post up since the bug has bitten me and the wife once again after a few years lol... not as crazy as other builds on here. and yes... i said it's my wifes car, she's just as stoked as i am for this build lol

How it was for a few years just on air



Picked up some 19x10 +45 All Around Walds, which are now for sale btw


Then picked up the new kicks

ame ax's
F: 19x9.5 +12 wrapped in 215/35/19 Direzza's
R: 19x10 -12 Wrapped in 225/35/19 Direzza's


Test Fitted them to see how much roll and pull was needed

Fronts Sat Nicely at ride height, just needed to roll the lip flat and actually gonna run a small spacer to push them out a tad


Rears poked and need some "massaging" to make the aristo fit them lol



Heat Gun, pbm fender roller ,elbow grease and patience


Rears After rolling & pulling. Pictures make it look a lot better than it is.. still needs bodywork and fronts need spacer

latest mod was making the templates and mounting the 3 piece spoiler yesterday
