What's up everyone, had my eye on this car since last year. Got lucky enough to attend the Asphalt up Event in Florida with my boy Diego from over at Vossen in October and fell in love. Here I am almost 6 months later and finally purchased this beautiful machine.
I'm also a photographer, so you can expect quality photos in this thread when I update it.
I'm coming from a G37 that I took from stock to this.





And here's some photos from Asphalt Up that I took.









And last but not least of course, my new girl.









At Home where she belongs




I still have my VFS-1 so expect some updated pictures soon, and hope to move to Vossen Precision Series before to long along with some other mods that I have planned.
Stay tuned, and feel free to follow me on IG: Zydan000 for more pictures.
Also I started a group on Facebook for any of us that would like to join: Lexus RC-F Owners
It's public for now, so join, share and invite, lets start a good discussion about mods, parts and other great things. Happy to be a part of the Lexus family~ look forward to seeing what we all do!

Thanks! So I took the car yesterday to get the roof and spoiler wrapped with the new 4D carbon fiber vinyl over at my friends shop CB3 Customs.
While it was getting wrapped I used my gopro to make a time lapse video of the install.

Check it out and let me know what you think, and of course some High Quality pictures of the wrap completed as well.


And of course the pictures from the end of the video.

So I've been working on deciding what wheels to get, as you can probably see from my G I've been a part of Team Vossen, and this will be my 4th set, and planning to move to their Precision Line with this vehicle.

I've been trying to decide no which wheel, and what color~ I had even though about going to a 21in wheel, but think I'm gonna leave it at 20.

My Photoshop abilities are not great, but here's a few renders I've put together and though others my like to get an idea of what some different wheels might look like on our cars.

Once order is placed for these custom wheels, takes 3 weeks to get them, so it will be a while before you see what style and color choice I went with, but in the meantime here's some different pictures for fun.

Awesome goodies!

The 5th rendering is my favorite. Those wheels look like they belong on the RCF.

Wheels have been ordered, still trying to decide on the perfect color, in the mean time though decided to remove the wrap and get the roof actually painted Obsidian Black.

Also while I was at it, might as well get the calipers painted and get them ready for the new shoes, went with RC-F infrared Red, beautiful tri-coat color. Will post more pictures later, but my guy at R1 Auto Works here in Dallas is sending me pictures as he goes. Enjoy!

Thanks!

Well while I'm waiting for my wheels, and some other things I decided might as well get some matching toys.
As you can see I may be a bit obsessed at this point.

Here's a couple of pictures, also if you're following me on Instagram you know what wheel I chose, if you're not let me introduce you to VPS-302, and a few pics of the drop after springs had time to settle.

Vossen sent me updated picture of finished wheel.
Hand Brushed Tinted Smoke ~ can't wait to see them in person, if all goes well I can have it all put together this weekend. Big thanks to Diego, and rest of the Vossen family as always!





Also looks like GTHAUS is about done and ready for order, next on my list then it's on to the Varis kit!
