To put on overlays??? You can't do it? It's easy... use a drop of soap and water in a spray bottle, spray the light and the overlay, and position.

I'd like to see a video of this, I've never heard anyone ever call the GR overlays easy. Best solution IMO is Niteshades paint.

This! I tried the overlays and they are a pain, and I've done tints all my life, unless you wait for warmer days, heat gun and a lot of patience is not worth the hassle, I did the Niteshades.

came out pretty good, randys a good guy 80 bucks for install, if id do it again id buy a sheet of the vinyl and have him cut it, because the pre cuts ones are harder to work with.

I had overlays on my '09 WRX 5-door, but they looked like crap so I ripped them off and painted instead.

I've watched all the videos, read all the posts, and tried installing them twice on my 2013 hatch without much luck...first time came out like garbage and second time didn't come out much better. Even with using a heat gun, squeegee and soap/water, all goes well until you start to wrap the little bulge in the middle of the tail, then comes all the wrinkles that seem impossible to avoid...even my local tint shop wouldn't touch them because they are such a pain, looks awesome if done right though...
