I finally got round to snapping some recent shots of the vinyl wrap ..unfortunately all I could scrounge up was my crappy point and sh*%t camera

Done--semi gloss roof rails & hatch trim, flat black on the lower 1/3. Plastidipped w/ clear acrylic: lower rear bumper trim, bottom rails under sideskirts & JDM fog lamp covers

More detailed photos, materials used, steps & procedures can be found in my members journal.

Subtle carbon fiber exhaust shield added a nice finishing touch.:biggrin:

Definitely different. I think your car looked great without it though, just my honest opinion.

I think it looks great JE. a few more final touches(we both know what they are) and the car will be perfect. When you get the spoiler are you going to wrap it or leave it gold?

Thanks for the compliments, IMO, looks much better in person.

I should be spending money on a real camera, not car parts..haha

The spoiler will remain sierra gold...

I like it. Looks sharp, IMO.

I was just thinking about this last night, after seeing a certain Forester at a recent east coast meet.

I think it looks ok.... I prefer the paint though.

Does your bumper fit ok? It looks very wavy under the light.
Bumpers fit like they should....The JDM front end has weird spaces around the headlight surround that are only noticeable at eye level. But pass rear has a lil wave to it, as I pushed a dent out after a snowy mis-drift. Pics are in my journal somewhere.

I only paid for product and partial labor..as a friend helped me do it. But I was quoted at $500-$600. I can always go back to gold too...:Banane17:

I don't need fender flares yet w/ my 18x9...but we will re-determine once my 18x9.5 come in. I am fairly sure Dale has a JDM underground mafia sourcing parts for him, and I couldn't get them if I tried....hactually, when I started my rear spoiler search a while back...the Syms one that he has was discontinued.

But yes...black roof rails are a must do for early years...get to work!!!:biggrin:

Finally got a 1st person view of this over the weekend...

Looks great! You guys definitely took the time to wrap all the lil' nooks and crannys.

Oh, and the carbon fiber exhaust heatshield is totally LEGIT!
