looks good dude. I did my trunk as well, but took everything off.
Yea, I was thinking of doing everything but I wanted to leave something on and the STi badge looked the best, so i left it. I could always take it off if I decide to later on.

looks good :) just use a hair dryer and some dental floss right?? ...i need to do mine
There was a video on how to do it, but i'll just sum it up for you.

It was pretty easy actually, just took some time/patience.

1. Heated up the the SUBARU lettering with a hair dryer, took like 1 min per letter.
2. Used dental floss to get behind the lettering and pull it off. Now with all the letters off, there was still all of the adhesive left over.
3. I sprayed the adhesive with bug/tar remover, some people used wd-40 or goo-gone, and let it soak/sit for 5-10 mins.
4. Wipe off all of the bug/tar remover, then take the hair dryer again and heat up the adhesive until its soft/sticky. Then rub off the adhesive, I found it to come off best with my thumb actually lol. All of the adhesive didn't come off the first try, it took me 3 times of applying the bug/tar remover and letting it soak for everything to come off.

Thats it.<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

^Did the "Subaru" cause any fading to the paint after it was debadged?
Initially you could see where the emblems used to be, but I washed the trunk off, put on a couple coats of wax and theres no way you can even tell they were on there.

Sorta, but not really. I work in the Elma Plaza at Cy's so thats closer to Schultz than my house, so you might see it parked in the parking lot when I get it on the road. I'm sure you'll see me around. Do you live in Elma also?
