Find someone locally who does it! I had a local friend who does vinyl wrapping.
Nice! Thanks! Looking forward to other mods!

Any more information on the stereo swap, were you able to utilize the steering wheel buttons?

Also, what now shows on the MID when you're on the audio section?

What are the details on the fog light overlay? I might be interested in doing that on my limited when I get it.

Congrats. Glad you took off the stock wheels, I'm definitely not a fan of those.

Some gold wheels instead of black would make this epic.

Wow, you gotta love this guy!!! Lol, this is just awesome man and the black roof looks fantastic! I would like to do a black roof...well unless I go black lol.

Keep it coming, this is fun to watch and I plan on changing the radio myself so any info you find out (like, without the radio does the backup camera, fuel economy, boost gauge, etc still work?) will help us all out.

SUBSCRIBED!

I think '11 STi Enkie's are the right wheels for this car. Glad to see it already modded!

Man those wheels change the car. Nice! So which trim level comes with black headlights? Didn't realize any of them had those damn chrome headlights. You going to black them out?

Nice ride! Really liking the black roof overlay. Got a question for you, are those the "sport package" wheels or are those the base sti wheels? They look like 18's in that first picture with the old wheels still on. If they are do you mind me asking how much you paid for all 4?

******OK I have a lot of questions on the stereo so here is the answer. My previous vehicle was an XV Crosstrek. It was the same interior lay out as this vehicle. I had Car Toys (install shop) install it into my crosstrek with a steering wheel control module. When I took out the stereo everything was basically unplug and reinstall into the WRX. I have lost the functions of my MODE, push-to-talk, and answer/end call buttons, but, I have volume and change song still working on the steering wheel, which is all I really care about. Going from the XV to the WRX was basically plug and play for me since the stereo shop had it all wired up.

They were hand cut. You can tell up close that they are not perfect. Need to figure out how to take the black plastic off (without breaking it) to get the fog overlays on perfect.

The multi function display still works. On the screen where its mostly black and empty I now have a warning that says "check stereo", but no lights, warnings, or odd chimes.

I thought about gold wheels, but decided against it and went with the all black/red.

Great info! I know your main goal was the sound level buttons but are you going to try to get the use of the other buttons also? I ask because my plan is to get a head unit with Apple's new "carplay" so hopefully the "push to talk" could still be used to talk to seri, send text, etc.

As busy as you are you are sharing a lot so thanks again!

So I'm guessing normal wiring harness will work and no dash kit needed for double din.
