3D Carbon Fiber Rear Bumper Overlay - 2015-2020 WRX / STI
Hello all! Welcome to my Veteran Owned store! I actually got the design inspiration from a Japanese rear bumper overlay. Working with overseas suppliers I have stumbled upon a lot of interesting products. A little vinyl in the right places can really make your vehicle stick out compared to any stock vehicle! It can also protect this area from scratches and prevent future scratches from happening.
This material is durable and will last for years. I source the vinyl for these products from US suppliers. They are often made in the US or Europe. Material standards are high. For the 3D Carbon material, do not apply wax. Just clean with normal soap and water. Only the 3D Carbon material is textured.

NOTE: Now available in gloss black and matte black.
Clean the surface of the rear bumper. The easiest way to apply this is to wet the back of the vinyl. You can even use a little soap. This will allow you to slide the vinyl around, but will require the use of heat to really make it stick. This method is highly recommended.
Focus mainly on the lead edge cause this is the visible edge. Using heat from a hair dryer or heat gun will be essential. Just make sure you use small amounts of heat and work you way up. If it would burn you, it will probably burn the material. Center the overlay and start pushing out all the water / soap with your fingers. Do not use a squeegee or anything else that could potentially scratch the material. Continue until you reach the corners.
Should anything come up in the few hours after install, just use heat immediately to press it down. Over time the bond becomes stronger and the water you used will evaporate completely. The DIY install will leave you proud of the work you've done. A great conversation piece as others will probably want to know how you did it all.
