    removing rear wing question

    So I've decided to remove the rear WRX spoiler, however, doing so will leave 4 open holes. Is there a DIY on how to cap them off? Any help would be appreciated, thank you!!

    have you tried finding someone to swap trunks with? that is honestly the easiest/cheapest route.

    you can go to home depot and get little plugs to fill the holes but its not a long term solution. you'll want to get it professionally done & repainted.

    I got the plugs from Lowes.. they were uber cheap, and leaked. So I coated them with silicone.. still looks like crap.

    how big are the holes?
    if theyre as big as the mounting holes for front license plate you can try subispeed, they sell some color matched plugs to cover those holes for plate delete maybe it will fit there

    What year and model car are you talking about taking the wing/spoiler off of? Confused and thinking you have an earlier year since the new gen4 models only have the wing on the STi and it is rarely referred to as a WRX.
