CLCTVE.US x lifewithjson – VERSION.II

Sorry my dudes… It’s been stagnant as hell over here. I’ve pretty much lost my life in CoD the last week and that’s pretty much all I do during my free time… Which is whenever I’m not at work LOL. I got absolutely nothing to share except for some older things that I haven’t posted and I think that’s good for now.

Lots of birthdays coming up and to add to that, Christmas season is also upon us. Malls are busy as hell and I don’t want to be near any of it as it gets closer to the day. Instead, all I’ve been doing is planning and waiting for my car parts. I’m having a hard time finding the Rocket Bunny V1 diffuser in stock and I keep getting the beat around with vendors with dates and availability. It’s frustrating as hell. You’d think for such a popular kit, I could have sourced it faster than my kit and wing… But it’s not even within my sight at the moment. Does anyone have a RB hookup? LOL

Anyway, I thought I’d share this gem that I had EJ ( render real quick for me while he was doing my other one. Over this past summer, I wanted to get bronze ZE40’s SO bad. I was pretty set on getting rid of the red TE37’s and grabbing the ZE’s over winter but once I saw this render, I got a little less excited about them. Don’t get me wrong, the ZE40’s are still a sexy wheel but it just doesn’t seem to flow as well as the red TE’s. I do want to go a little more aggressive but that can wait until I get some of the more important things done on the car…

Well, I apologize again for the lack of updates – I might have even forgotten how to use my camera lol! Hopefully I’ll have something in the coming weeks…


FRS Face Lift Render

Note: I did not do the render. It was a talented member over on FT86Club that did it 🙂

A few weeks back I posted a bunch of spy shots of the FRS that was going out on a test drive with the front bumper all masked up which obviously hints at some changes. On the forums, a member was able to slightly make out some of the lines based on visual interpretation and come up with something that might resemble what the new FRS bumper may look like.

Of course, most people on the forum disagree but IMO, if you can’t create a better render yourself, you don’t really have a right to knock the work of a guy who tried.


Here’s the shot he used where he marked lines based on what he could see. Pretty darn close to me…


And the render based off of the lines. I personally think it looks pretty good. I would say 80% of the time, I’m never a fan of any new rendition of a next gen model but this looks particularly good if it’s any indication of what’s to come. It would be a toss up (personally) between the original bumper and the new one.

Either way, something new and cool to look forward to. I’m more interested in a next gen FRS/BRZ to see what new things come our way…
