Lexus LS430 - Trunk make over

If you have seen Gio's car you know it's stunning. Pretty much everything down to the small details flows with the car except the trunk.  The initial air set-up was hidden and when shown it looked much like the basement in your house where you kept the door closed and nobody ever went in there, afraid of what they might find.
Well, I had the opportunity to update and make this "basement" shine. The entire system was ripped out and resurfaced with trunk carpet to clean up what was about to go back in. The previous metal floor frame was used to support the 2 new 3 gallon aluminum tanks that were painted and striped to match the interior.  The Accuair management was displayed a little bit more proudly also  on the frame. Most of the airlines and wires were tucked away bringing full focus on the tanks, compressors and management.
The sub box was also updated with discarding the tired 90's look of fleck stone paint and brighten up with the Vanilla paint.
The amp racks were left. The initial install had blue led's to illuminate the plexi glass. The color clashed with the aqua striping used on the car so magic was preformed and viola! We have color matched lighting now that better compliments the car.
The owner has future plans for this car so be on the look out of updated pics and progress.

  2. Nice touch on the tanks. Look like old Kicker SS amps.
