Default Cheap and Easy 08+ wrx/sti rear tail light mod.

As simple as I thought it would be. Printed a black section big enough for both tail lights on perforated vinyl, and installed. Just used some scraps that were laying around at work. Had to stretch it to get it flat but it came out perfect. There are two types of perf though, one has more visibility than the other, (ie. 30% reveal and 60% reveal). I used the 60% and you can see the lights perfectly though it. If I ever get hassled about it I can pull it off in seconds and re install again. Was really that easy. I can make more if anyone is interested.... for any model...

I have None, but this is not laminated which makes it really easy to work with. It will fade in a few months without the lamination but I can remove and re do the whole thing in minutes since it isn't laminated and real easy to stretch. I didnt even need to remove the lights. If I laminated there wouldnt be any fading for over a year but I would need to take the lights out and used a heat gun and stretch it all the way around the edges and it should come out fine, just take a while longer to install.
