Well, I've started back working on my Mag. Its been on a lil hold while we moved. I recieved my air kit from Kenny & Glenn at 3gCustomz yesterday, using UAS bags. Awesome guys to deal with! It'll be going on this weekend. I'll be running the EasyStreet AutoPilot Controller, that'll eventually be fiberglassed into the ashtray area.
Pics & Videos coming soon....

Eibach SportLine Install
First thing that had to go was the wheels. The factory 18's weren't gettin it. So, I opted for some 22x9 U2 Wheel 35S wheels w/ a +13mm offset. Tires are Sunny 255/30/22. These went on like a charm. No rub, lift or cutting required. No problems ever.
After a while of the tread wearing, the Sunnys did become noisey. Somewhat sounding like a bad wheel bearing. No more Sunnys for me..
Heres some pics before the drop kit, front windsheild tinted 50% as well >>>
Only Wheels & Windshield/ Side Windows Tinted:

Needless to say, The Mag had to brought down to earth a lil. Waaaay too much gap between the tire & body.
Heres a few pics from the Eibach SportLine Lowering Kit Install, done by my homie & myself....

Ok. We installed the airride this past weekend. only took a couple days & no major tools. I ordered my kit from Kenny & Glenn @ 3gCustomz in GA, (vendors on here).
My kit consists of 2 VIAIR 480's, 1/2" Lines & Valves, 3/8" Dump Valves, UAS Airbags & LX-Brackets.
My tank is a 5gal. Stainless Steel that I ordered from AirBagIt.com.

Upcoming mods include upgrading the factory head unit & fiberglassing the AutoPilot into the ashtray area. More pics coming soon...
I'm sorry I haven't updated my thread in awhile. I've just been busy w/ the mods, work, school, new baby boy & etc.. I have lots of pics & will be posting them shortly.
BTW, the wheels in the above pics are for sale (wheels only). I'll be posting them in the FOR SALE section shortly. I'm only selling them due to I have another set that I'm gonna paint when I paint the car so I no longer need these. They'll fit all LX's w/ no problem. Anyone who is interested, PM me or email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
*** WHEELS ARE SOLD !!!! ***

Reason: WHEELS ARE SOLD !!!!
* UPDATE: Wheels in pics above are SOLD.
Heres a couple pics that I forgot to post before. One is my airtank which is a stainless 5gal- looks like chrome but you dont have to worry about rust. This is temporary until the subs go in. Still not bad looking for just throwing it in...lol.
The 2nd pic is my controller. Its the EasyStreet AutoPilot from AirLift.

This pic is from me glassing my dash bezel. I moved the seat heater switches up, added the air controller where the map pocket was, filled in the area for the aftermarket radio as needed & added my AudioControl DDC EQ Controller to the place where the ashtray went. This is one full piece & is only in primer. Came out very sexy! It'll be painted to match the car along w/ other interior pieces.

Heres a pic of my aftermarket radio installed. Fit really nice. I did bypass the CANBUS and kept the steering wheel controls (pics of that soon). The head unit is the Pioneer AVH-P4200DVD (awesome unit btw!).

Lookin good! Did you do the fiberglassing on the bezel yourself?
Sorry for the delay on this build. Had MAJOR issues w/ the body shop that ended in me popping up one morning w/ a tow truck to get my sh%t. I'll be posting lots of new pics & posting the prev ones back up since I broke their links... STAY TUNED !!!!
