Apologize for the ****ty camera work, the road is awesome and was littered with exotic vehicles and absent of police for over 200 miles the road is windy like this.


* Also what kind of prep work is required with plasti dip....Sanding???

No sanding required just clean it up nicely with some acetone and go for it. The stuff is amazing. Dries perfectly, really easy to work with. Car looks good, btw if you want to trade trunks for a wrx spoiler Im in Temecula

I got masking tape and taped off the entire area, then I got a pen and scratched it side to side on the tape covering the "wrx" to give me an outline, then I got an exacto razor and cut the wrx out then 15 layers of paint each time letting it dry fully to prevent any sort of dribbling

What did you end up painting the side trim with? Did you sand at all?

No sand, I went with plasti dip on the window sills, It looks exactly like the weather stripping but I wish I would have know to remove the tape immediately ha

There's actually a video floating around the internet somewhere on how to remove the trim from our cars. Debating if I want to take the time and do that or just paint it on the car. SWP is a lot less forgiving with black paint I'm sure.

The worst part of painting the car was the taping. However, I really do not think it would be worth removing it as the was a quick and easy mod to do. I recommend it to anyone!

Thought I would update, Invidia catted down pipe and a pro tune are in store for next week. I am looking forward to seeing the gains on paper.
RCE regular guy springs and whiteline 24mm front and 22mm rear sways next.

Excited!
