Red out the tail lights, and put the WRX logo back on and painted it black :twisted:

What you guys think?

when they had badges you all would take them off now they dont and youre putting them on.

some designer at FHI is going to slap you.

... They still come with badges... lots of badges. He had already removed them before the "Before" pic.

Miracle_max: The badging looks great! Are the red tails overlays?

In my book, $100 is cheap for a brand-new part. :lol:

If you're confident enough in your ability to paint it and have it turn out well, I'd say go that route. If you want a sure-thing and like the looks, I'd pop for the SPT trim piece. Granted, I have no painting skillz. :bounce:

Does it count as a new part when it just an overlay? It just double sided tapes to the chrome.....

I'd probably paint it first and if it turns out like crap there's a great $100 fix.

:shock: Is that all it is? In that case, +1 on this:
