Don't know if this is unique, but I did it myself to my 05 WRX. GREEN L.E.D lighting on the driver side floor when I turn on my headlight switch on...

Kind of, not many people have it in older models, I have it in my drivers and passenger in my 06 but it's white and tied to my dome light.

That's only for those fancy 08+ers though, plus DIY is better.0, and for under $10, why not!

How well do your squirters work in their new position? How did you fill in the hood?

did something similar on my 06, I had it wired up to my dome but hooked up to relays so I can also switch them on/off with a switch when ignition is on

I've been dreaming for a while on how to add another squirter to my car. It would be facing the wrong direction so I can shoot the cars in front of me when I'm driving in a caravan.

Seeing this made me want to pursue that again.

I got the idea from a member to use 168 LEDs (T10), so I simply wired the sockets to the positive/negatives wires of the dome light switch and used 8SMD T19 bulbs in white, they work great, are bright, fill the footwells, and look factory.

They work great where they are. I took some time aiming them properly. You have to do that or you will be carrying a water bottle with you to clean your windshield. The hood was filled with some aluminum and smoothed out with filler. My buddy Mike filled the hood for me.

Unique mod? Custom front body rail brace to go behind a fmic. Little cutting and welding needed to install but it is stiffer than the front bumper beam.

It would be awesome if it worked like that, cause then you can just peel it off later!

^ why would you go to so much trouble to protect the original paint? if your already working to keep them looking nice so you can resell them later, don't bother getting them in the first place..... the resale value of aftermarket wheels isn't that great even if they are in amazing shape...

Its not for resale value. I simply like to keep clean the things I buy for my car.
I like to cruise through the mountains a lot in my free time, and you know how those roads affect paint -__-
Also, with plastidip and that paint on top, I have the option to give my wheels a temporary color of my choosing. Then whenever I decide I want to switch, or to just use a clear plastidip, I can just peel it off.

Seems pretty unique to me I guess. Did this a couple weeks ago myself.

For the metalcast to work right, it needs to be sprayed over polished or bare metal to give the "anodized" look. If you laid it over plastidip out probably just become a really dark color since its a thine transparent paint to begin with. But I bet other paint would work fine over plastidip

I think in theory you could use the clear plasti dip and then use the metalcast over it. Don't quote me but I think it would work. If you try it let us know.
