Considering going wingless, and using CF wrap?
 
Hello, I am considering going wingless on my 05 WRX. I tried researching if anyone has using carbon fiber wrap to cover up the holes. I know this may sound odd, but this is why I am asking if anyone tried this and if it worked for them. My idea is to take off all the emblems and then using goo gone or rubbing alcohol to get rid of the residue and clean the trunk lid carefully. Then putting some kind of plugs and a layer of some kind to cover up the lid, after that, I would put the layer of carbon fiber wrap and maybe it would work.
BTW: the tape is [url=http://www.ebay.com/itm/3D-Textured-Black-Carbon-Fiber-Air-Release-Vinyl-Wrap-60-x-60-Roof-Trunk-Hood-/320994565330?_trksid=p2047675.m2109&_trkparms=aid%3D333001%26algo%3DRIC.CURRENT%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D8%26meid%3D5022122776544790697%26pid%3D100010%26prg%3D1076%26rk%3D2%26sd%3D261155579495%26]3D Textured Black Carbon Fiber Air Release Vinyl Wrap 60" x 60" Roof Trunk Hood | eBay[/url]

Any ideas, help, or comments would be greatly appreciated. This is just an idea.:cool:

The only way way to do this where it doesn't look cheesy is either to get a wingless trunk or to fill the holes with bondo and repaint the trunk. Plugs and vinyl dots are obvious and carbon fiber vinyl is rice because using it insinuates that you have a carbon fiber trunk.

This is the shorter wrx wing, right? not the sti ?

yes I have the wrx wing, not the STi
and brfatal, its just an idea. I will probably bondo the holes anyways. I only asked to see if anyone has done this before.

Problem with just using bondo is that over time you will see rings where the holes were and might even fall out. Ny advice is swap trunks or take it somewhere to gave them weldes shut then paint
