    I have to say.... THANK YOU to all that helped make this build possible over the years and to all that support this build! First and foremost, I have to thank my awesome wife, Jolyne, that understands and enjoys my hobby as much as I do and for allowing me to spend extra money on the LS. Everybody knows that $$$ makes shit happen but in reality the friendship, talent, help, service from these people listed below have made this build so enjoyable and possible.

    - Sean (JDMPalace)
    - Freddie/Elroy and staff from AutoFashion
    - Samson from Revison Audio
    - Fred and staff from Jocson's Paint and Autobody

    With my first child (daugher) due in March, the build will be a lot slower than it has already been.... Good News is that my wife has finished her BSN for Nursing and I can't wait to have two pay checks in the household again! A lot of things on my mind to progress the LS430 but my priorities have now changed, but I will not abandon the LS. So keep an eye out because I don't plan to sell or quit the build anytime soon.

    i think you picked the best kit on the market hands down. the Mode Parfume Regalia for the LS430 and the 18Crown are some of the best ever made,, if only my wife had the same opinion i would be rockin' one on the crown right now. can i ask if you paid full price? if not then i need to get your source...

    Thanks. PM'd for Kit info.

    Thank you Jbo. I'm super pumped about my daughter! Like I said, I still have plans for the LS, they are just going to be lower in the priority.

    I sometimes think I should've waited to have kids and do something big like this, like you I share the military budget, lol. But I am glad and content man, you will be too. You're right though, the build will slow quite a bit, lol, kids...

    Love everything about this car enjoyed seeing this in person at AF and currently is my desktop and a main reason why I want a Lexus now...

    But what military budget you guys sharing?? Haha when I was a contactor yea maybe but not for me when I was enlisted in the Army...but getting demoted twice I'm sure didn't help lol

    Thanks man... Means a lot coming from you! Your car blew my mind when I saw you pulling up! Wish we could have met up at the meet... I swear people should were name tags with their VSC Username.

    Awesome build Dajap. Sadly I could not make it to the AF meet. But I am sure I will see you around.

    Hahaha figures. I guess you just got to know a homie that knows a homie or blindly venture out and talk to people. Good times regardless!

    Yea I totally agree with the name tag comment...I probably walked by you and almost every other forum member on here and didn't even realize it. Would of been nice to converse with more of the forum members but next year I suppose.
    I am looking at getting a LS430 or 460 next.
    Keep it classy and take notes from LS's like yours... the wow factor I gained on my Y33 I sacrificed the wow how am i gonna get this up my driveway factor.
    I'ma build a ride that would make Ron Burgundy approve
