Default MobbinVIP Fabulous LS430

3 weeks ago I picked up an 02 LS430UL after selling my 2gen GS

Picked up the LS with the Fabulous kit already installed except the front bumper since its broken & 20" Profounds
In pix the wheels come out looking clean, but all 4 wheels need to be re-barreled & faces refinished.

Since all the wheels are done, I am rolling on stock wheels for now till I start my build within the next month or two.





As you can see the exhaust is not a Fabulous & I am not ready to shell out 2k+ as of now, but I did order a new Garcia Factory mufflers, should be coming within the next 2 weeks


My plans are to:
Get the Fabulous Front bumper on ASAP
Install new exhaust
Order more Fabulous Parts(Grill, Neck pads,....)
Thinking about LED tail lights
Swap out the OEM air for after market air
BBK 8pot 6pot
& more down the line

I will be posting up any updates I do on the LS,
as of now, I am just doing maintenance that the previous owner didn't do.
Oil, Brks, Ball Joints, Lower Control Arm bushings,....


Updates

Nice find.
Those tips will fill up the exhaust cutout on the bumper.

Are you going more aggressive on the re-barrel?

I am, but not crazy camber for me, I had -11 on my GS & tires would only last 700 miles per-flip
I have to wait to build the wheels since I am getting BBK
I know I will have to run spacers since the Fab wheels are not bbk friendly
