I haven't been updating this thread as my mods were pretty minimal. The major work has mostly been maintenance and some body repair.
I finally settled () with a head/fog/tail light vinyl film combo. I replaced the grill once and painted it at least 3 times.
Of the "mods left" from my original post in 9/07...
"The only mods left are....
1. Eyelids - very soon
2. LS430 Xenon Retrofit
3. 3000K HID foggies
4. Custom Intake
5. Custom Exhaust"
I've added the eyelids, HID foggies and intake. There are still some mods I'd like to do, but they aren't anything that update the car to today's standards. Keep in mind this is a 12 year old car!!
I'm still on the fence with the LS430 retrofit as I like the look of the original headlights, not so much the bug-eyed projector retrofit look. Also, the exhaust is questionable as I really like the comfort of a silent cruiser. However, I am still open to getting some throaty V8 rumble....maybe a butterfly valve for noise control?
My new "mods left" list includes:
1. Retrofit IS300 yellow projectors into foglights - of course without looking too different
2. M3 style rear lip spoiler
3. Figure out exhaust
Don't be surprised if these 3 take me another 2 years
Yup, it's been a real long time. I also can't believe I've had these mods for this long.
Steveski, sorry for the "late" reply, but these are not the lowest settings. I have another 10 coils (1" or so) in the front and another 2-3 coils in the rear. At the lowest setting, there would be more rubbing, camber and drive-ability issues so this is the height as long as I continue using the LS as a daily driver.
Very nice! Put some tire shine on those tires!! (sorry I'm a detailer)
I dk if its just me or the 2 tone on the bottom might look better all black??
What tire shine do you recommend? I've purchased several recommended products, but they're all similar.
I thought about the monotone look, but I always go back to the fact that this is a 12 year old car and I don't really want to give it an ultra-modern appearance. I like the classy nuances that made the LS what it was at the time. Also, the 2 tone actually matches my wheels.
I use Meguiars Gold Class Endurance. I try to give it at least an hour to dry. Usually lasts a couple weeks even through rain.
What tire sizes do you have on those wheels? Have you rolled the fender lips?
I only ask becasue at that height you shouldn't have any real rubbing issues unless you have aggressive offsets but it doesn't look like that's the case.
