Only problem I had with the 3m film was I didnt allow enough time for it to bond before I wiped it all down with quick interior detailer and it lifted on some of the bends. Everything else was great

Nice! My wrx is OBP. So I'm wondering if should just go flat black or maybe flat dark grey. My boy (13) is going to custom paint a hood scoop for me! He's stoked. donations being accepted! FTW

you need an extra scoop for your son to paint? not putting much confidence in him...

Vinyl > paint


comes in all colors and you peel off when you get tired.

I'm going to take off my stock one and save it for when the custom gets old. Or need to sell. We'll make it look nice. And if it doesnt work out there's always vinyl right!

Nice job! I too thought I wouldn't like it but it looks BADA55!!! Congrats! If one were to wrap their car, how should they approach paint imperfections such as rock chips and scratches? Did you have to do any type of repairs to ensure a nice flat surface?

I'm usually not a fan of carbon wraps on cars but surprisingly this is the first impreza I have seen and it looks mean, really helps show the aggressiveness of the cars shape. Looked great until those stripes down the side but thats just my opinion

Hence the less than $2500. We actually ended up paying around $450/roll from fellers. I highly recommend everyone check them out for some killer prices.

Also, old ass post. Good going. That's from like 2+ years ago.

Looks awesome. How much does wrapping your car go for as far as the vinyl wrap it self?

Also flexfuel implies you can put whatever fuel you want in it, whenever you please, which I doubt you can do, without draining your gas tank. Even if you can, the flex fuel badge will look dumb on your subaru, just get rid of that turbo badge from wal-mart, and leave it badge less.
