Default Smoothing out rear trim

I like the look of the 03-05 Foresters gate trim because it doesn't have the badge, I did test fit a trim from a 04 forester and even tho it fit on the car, it was a little shorter in height

You can see in the first pic that it has the badge, it is also 2 pieces for whatever reason



Now you can see it apart and that the piece is NOT flat, it is shaped like the badge



First i filled the back side with resin, so when grinding it flat i would have a backing



Next i had to grind the front to be more even, you can see how much would have been a whole in the plastic



Next filled the front side indent with resin (and sanded)



Next i used the resin between the 2 pieces and then on the line between the 2



Lots of sanding



First light coat of body filler to smooth it out a little, and then sanding (did 2 coats of body filler)



Primer, first coat, (did 2 so far) will still need to sand the primer and will most likely paint it body color when i paint some stuff for a buddy in like 2 week



Overall very happy with it so far

Quick pic of the trim mounted, just did a test fit to see how it looks, Color seems like it is a little off (tiny bit on the light side), so i need to decide if i want to repaint it or i might have it wrapped in real carbon fiber

I think you should keep it body color. It just looks super clean that way and doesn't stick out like a sore thumb. Only those who really know these cars will notice too.

Body color looks sick, but I agree with repainting it. That kind of thing would drive me nuts, even if no one else noticed it.

Great build BTW.

i can't debadge it without repainting the hatch, as there is holes in the body where the forester badge is

Well obviously just repaint the hatch with the paint you just used, then your paint matching problem is solved.
