Cant say personally, but install seems very easy.. Just remove taillights, tap wire to taillights, route to the reflectors and swap.

I don't have pictures of everything. Some things without pictures include: mesh painted black on hood, cleared/blacked out headlights, painted wheels black, carbon fiber wrap on roof rack

The hood had this plexiglass scoop delete when I bought my car...


Wrapped my phone battery cover with a carbon fiber vinyl, then laser etched it, as well as my key.


Went back and added the sillouette


Traded STI interior for WRX interior. There was too much blue.


Crown Royal Black shift boot, painted bezel ring satin black, and outlined STI with an ultra fine tip red Sharpie


Painted the rest of the interior dash pieces






Swapped my '04 tails for '06 tails, used a dremel to take them apart, and painted the housings black.

I got the wiring schematics from my RFID Keyless entry / Push button start dealer so I was able to "test" it out by making a custom button for the system:
Started off with the factory USDM intercooler sprayer button:


Had to solder the 2 LED ground inputs together since the upper LED was normally only activated when the button was pressed. By changing that, I can now force the inputs and tell it when to light:


Also had to solder the back of the switch so that I could use the same ground input for both the LED and the input to the ground activation input. This pic was taken directly after soldering so nothing had been cleaned up yet:


Installed in the dash:


It isn't 100% complete yet. I still need to change the upper LED setup to allow for 2 separate LED's (the factory AK setup uses a green and a red LED to differentiate the different options). I am also having a sticker made to change the lettering to "Engine Start". I'll post up pics once its all finished.

You could leave it saying IC spray and have it be a theft deterrent

I installed my garage door opener under my shifter trim and wired up my own button so I can activate it by pressing on a specific location under my shift boot. Also tapped into the 12v in the center console to power it so it will never have a dead battery.

No pictures because it's an invisible install and I'm not taking it apart again

There's plenty of theft deterrent built into the RFID system. If the thief went as far as they would need to bypass the RFID, a hidden button wouldn't stop them.

Found my old horn that I replaced with my supertones. Had to pull the bumper to put a new retaining bracket in place and my Hellas stopped working, so I had to fix the stock horn wire. Then I found my backup horn and realized 4 horns are always better than 3!

Hey, did you ever take pictures of where you cut open your tail lights?

not really unique but very usefull....so i had some water get into my trunk and ruin the spare tire cover so i decided to make a entire trunk cover out of 1/4" plywood. All i did was traced the carpet and cut it out with a jigsaw. then cut it in half so i could get the spare tire if needed.

Before


After/ the seam in the center is due to it not fitting so im going to use a mounting bracket to mount my sub to hold the top two pieces together




im also going to put 1/8" foam padding on the bottom of the wood due to annoying rattles when hitting bumps

yep replaced the old boring 06-07 tail lights with 04-05 tails. the leak was coming from the foam on the tails wasnt sealing on the body of the car so the new lights are all sealed up. Also need to check if its not coming from the bolt on my spoiler

This isnt 100% yet, but getting there.

Nothing exciting here. V1 on the mirror. (also not my pic. I didn't get one yet.)


This is a temporary setup. I am going to fiberglass around it, to blend it in a bit


Night shot


Kill switches for the gauges and V1 mounted


Edit: Some more work
Most of the fiberglass, filler and sanding is done. Have to correct my fitment a hair and should be ready for paint.

When I painted my headlights I decided to paint the cut off plate a metallic purple to give the lens a hint of color.

Not the best picture but you get the idea.

Just a cheap ass $35 Chinese dash cam install.

1. Auto start when car is started.
2. Auto stop when car is shut off.
3. Set to 720p / 30fps
4. Set to record 10:02 min files on a (extra) 32g class 10 micro sd card. Looping is turned off.











The source file is actually smoother and cleaner than this youtube upload of my first video. Also, at 2:45 you'll hear the audio pick up several bikes way off to the left. (make sure to switch to 720p on youtube)
