Red tails with cutouts & STI rear strip, before and after pics

Ok, below are the before and after pictures.

Completely stock 5-door rear end to modded rear end.

I tinted and cut-out the tails myself from raw sheets (bought from decalfx.com).
I was able to tint the backup lights while they were on the car, I had to remove the outer taillights to tint them well.
I made a template for the cutouts and cut them out beforehand, I didn't cut the interiors out on the car.

The STI rear hatch trim was done by the dealership (for about $200 total, parts, install, paint everything).

Part # 93033FG010 (The badge)

Part # 91111FG060NN (the rear trim)

Feel free to ask any questions :)

The install on the tails was relatively difficult...i had to redo just the outer tailights once because the first time i did them i had some trimming issues and the vinyl got too hot and started to pucker weird.

The second time I retinted the outer taillights it went much smoother, I recommend that you get a heat gun (instead of hair dryer) for doing the tallights as well as some extra film so you can redo if needed.

Also, don't forget a sharp x-acto knife! :)
