    Agreed that fitment looks great without a body kit

    Man, its been a while since I posted anything new about the car. Let's just say that the last round of mods took a lot time to tweak and drained me of my cash. Some may have seen this stuff on my FB but figured it was time to post it in here.

    New items added to the LS...
    1. Out with the old factory air and replaced with AirRunner.
    2. Accuair E-Level management installed.
    3. Custom Audio setup for trunk complete.
    4. Junction Produce BBK 6/4 Pot installed after a lot of work!

    No pictures of the air setup due to it being under the audio but credit goes to AutoFashion!

    Pictures of the trunk setup which includes
    (2 )12" Alpine Type X, (2) Alpine PDX 600.1, (1) Alpine PDX F4, (1) Alpine Type X Component Set

    As for the BBK. The tophat design on them made no sense to me. They had an indent which didn't allow me to run the LXZ's without running a 15mm spacer.

    The spacer pushed my wheels out 15mm more compared to when I was running stock brakes. I wasn't planning on buying new wheels for these brakes and I didn't want to run 15mm spacers in the back to match and do major body work so I decided to pick up a set of spare wheels while I decided what I wanted to do with the brake situation.
    I picked up a set of MRR wheels on Craigslist for $500 with tires but I had to replace one.

    I spotted a guy on clublexus selling a pair of LS430 tophats for a stoptech BBK with the mounting brackets. After a lot of measuring and emailing with this guy, I jumped the gun and bought them from him. I then told Autofashion my plan for trying to utilize these tophats with my JP Rotors and fabricating new parts for the stoptech caliper brackets. After Elroy did some measuring and drawing on CAD our custom caliber brackets design was sent off to get CNC'd.

    After they came back... Everything managed to fit perfectly and the wheels/brakes/old fitment was on point again!

    Some proper pictures will come sometime down the road, SD weather has been shitty lately.

    I just want to thank Freddie and Elroy at AutoFasion for the great work and all the help!!!

    Thanks everybody! Getting all this done took a lot of time but in the end I'm happy I stuck it through... I'm sure I tested AutoFasion's patience! I was starting to lose the passion rolling around on those MRR's....LOL
