How did you p-dip this? Did you take out the logo? Take out the whole grille? Or did you tape over it?

WELL DONE SIR !

Please show me...

What kind of red pinstripe did you use? Is it just like a flat tape? Or is it thick?

Just order the Grimmspeed. It's worth it!

Do you have to order one? Or is it a dealer option? There are two holes below the two they drilled that look like its meant for a bracket. I want to go to the dealer and make them put a new bumper on. Just seeing if I could get more info. I'll post a picture of the situation if needed.
If you have a total of 4 holes then its too late for my this unless the dealer will replace the bumper. If they haven't done that just order the Grimmspeed its not cheap but well worth it, that's what I did. They should have one for our cars now since I gave them the measurements when I had to custom cut the shaft.

Fairly simple. First time I did it, I put a cardboard piece behind the grille to cover the radiator and as to not have to take anything off. Cover for overspray. Check out youtube for plastidip methods im sure you can find a ton of information on there as well as tutorials!

Did you do your own retrofit on your headlights or did you buy them like that?

I personally don't like the gold with the chrome handle accents. If you plastidip all the chrome gold too... then it's hot.

I didnt think of the chrome vs gold clash. Thanks.


I guess that settles it. Black it is. Maybe another couple coats are in order.

you could always add the gt yellow films over fog lights for a splash of color, or change lug nuts color think of it as an accent wall

Yea fog light tints are on the list, just waiting for warm weather to do this stuff. Not sure about lug nuts, i was considering it until i heard it was frowned upon for being "ricey" lol. I still might.

other things im thinkin of: mudflaps, led conversion (partially done), footwell leds, hellas maybe (tho not sure how noob friendly it is)

Which color did you spray first? (Red or silver)

Your tail lights look great!

Please don't gold the chrome, you'll look like a 1970s pimp, or a total tool. Tint the chrome black and do your wheels gold or bronze on a black car, It's a good look.

Except it was a matte gold & the Impreza doesn't have nearly as much chrome. Handle accents, fog rings & one strip on the grill which I would go black not gold with. But all I was referring to was the handle accents not looking good next to it. Bit of an extreme example ya got there AND it's a car in Dubai... nuff said. & he already said he's going with black.
