    Default Mah SC400 Build! kind of...

    mostly catching up on maintenance and making sure i dont drive a POS.

    stolen from Clublexus:
    hello clublexus, i just want to introduce myself, my name is Paulo, i'm 18 years old living in las vegas and this will be my designated build thread. ill show you guys my previous cars and my current daily now which is my 93 SC400.
    I came from a 2011 Scion xb slammed on ksport coilovers on mercedes benz alphards, if anyone is from the Volkswagen/Audi scene you may be familiar with the wheels.

    aired out, jk not even that low.... :/
    then sold my wheels and picked up this 93 LS400 paid 3500 cuz the previous owner said all the maintenance was caught up, that was all bull, waterpump went out and transmission was thumping and it needed paint.

    my friend had a spare set laying around and did this for giggles. Really wish i could have made this happen, just tucking rim slammed and cambered a tad, this could have been cool....

    had that thing for a few months and then came across a customer at my work who wanted to trade his SC400 for my LS400, my car was in better condition but i did it anyway because i liked how the SC looked.
    heres when we first met up to check out the cars
    93 garnet red sc400 i believe with color matched sc400 lip, GS wheels, 97+ tails, and nakamichi sound system.

    Then started going to work with the interior, the car didn't have working window regulators so i picked some up from my local junkyard at 10 a piece and door panels for another 10 a piece also! These door pockets were destroyed :/

    now were pretty much caught up with my car, its on the TC wheels still, door panels in and yeah.
    A few days ago i went to my junkyard looking for LS400 seats to try and throw into my car but wasnt of any luck :/ I did however come across this for those that don't know 95-99 LS400 brakes are 4 pistons with a 12 1/4" rotor. Same company that makes Z32's

    CL Build by PJurisprudencia, on Flickr
    awe yeah you guys can probably guess i probably got this for cheap
    20 for two calipers with pads and 10 for both rotors

    CL build by PJurisprudencia, on Flickr

    CL build by PJurisprudencia, on Flickr
    20mm adaptor to clear the caliper.
    when i come back from mexico ill be getting the rotors turned/cut and get my calipers torqued right since theres a leak, pretty much the car isnt too safe to drive atm, good thing i just bike to work anyways, driving a v8 sucks. I also forgot to add i had my AC recharged for $100 bucks at a local shop here in town, blowing a cool 35* : and i replaced my serpintine belt cuz my neighbor had one laying around and just gave him $30 for it mine needed a replacing.

    I also have sc300 pads laying around if anyone in vegas wants em ill sell em cheap.
    and i also have to get this fixed/figured out

    Untitled by PJurisprudencia, on Flickr
    plans for the future are, 5 speed swap, might go the ka24 with adaptor plate route, slam it on PBM's, and wheels, and get the interior sorted out too.

    Woo! Another red SC! Great progress! I need to do the LS brakes on mine soon, how difficult were they? I haven't looked at how much work they need, lol. And I'd love to see the Alphards on that thing

    LS400 BBK was easy, i'm actually selling them because i don't want to run spacers and would much prefer the cash. Its a direct bolt on! all youll need are new brake lines.

    haha yeah, Theres a noticable difference, 60 bucks isnt really much to me in my opinion. saves me from buying a new steering rack so i didn't mind.

    I'm pretty disappointed :/ I most likely will be selling these and purchase my PBMS in a few months but for now this shall suffice.

    If I have ground clearance I'm not low enough.
