    We have a DIY forum here but this is what you seek probably. Just did a quick "search" with "mesh intercooler"

    I have mesh on my TMIC - no need to paint it, you can see through the mesh.

    Just buy an STi IC. The stock 06/07 wrx one is the worst iteration yet.

    I think you're a little confused. You want the letters WRX on your intercooler & you want the mesh on there too? Do what Bounce suggested with the stencil,(that's what I did) & then get a mesh piece to go over it. I'm sure you can still see the letters through the mesh like Micah said.

    You mean like this right?

    Yeah, you can paint the IC. If you want to paint the mesh, just buy some & use this as a stencil. Boom whack done!

    Spray paint in any color of your choice. I used heat temp paint just in case.

    No problem. I used poster board as a stencil. I centered it & then cut it to size for the IC. It took about 10 minutes all together. Maybe 20 mins total with painting 3 coats. It's really easy. Good luck.

    I know this is ancient, but I love the WRX logo on the intercooler! I have read all about how to do it, but I just need to find a big enough WRX logo to make a stencil cutout of... any suggestions where I can find one?
