Post What did you do to your RC350 / RCF today?

Share what you did today with the Lexus RC community!

Example: Picked up my new wheels and tires having them installed today! Stay tuned for pictures.

Example: I took her out of the garage and gave her a nice bath and followed up with a coat of wax.

Example: Getting first service done today.


Anything goes....

Great job on the detail!

Quick question, what do you use to clean your wheels?

Paint looks flawless! No scratches and no orange peel, at least from what we're seeing here. Did you inspect your paint looking for orange peel when you got it?

I didn't see any orange peal like paint... I use Turtle's Spray Black wax for a quick detail. They also have the full detail kit. But it's so much work.... lol

The full wax kit will cover minor scratches too. but expect 2-3hrs detailing ur car by hand...

Time to get a DA buffer. It cuts the time down to half of that, and you arms don't hurt as much. LOL

That's why I rather take my cars to detailers. Been thought that whole process with my olders cars and now i'm too lazy to do it

Hopefully other RC's come with paint in a condition as good as yours.

I got WeatherTech floor liners today. I had them in my truck and was hesitant becuase I though hey would take away the luxury feel inside the car, but they don't. They are a perfect fit and I'm really pleased with them!
