  1. Okay so I asked about a week ago if it was possible to do an aftermarket sub and amp install on a model that didn't include a stock sub (Without SONY). I didn't have many replies, I only assume because it's quite the task to do an install without a factory sub being in place already. But I have done it:

    Protect Dip Emblem Review

    Hey everyone, as a first post I'd like to share my experience (so far) with Protect Dip spray on rubber paint. This paint is pretty much the same as Plasti Dip and can be found at Canadian Tire or http://www.protectdip.com/. I picked up the best masking tape I could find, just in case it didn't work out. Here are the nice before pics: It was about +8C (46.4F) the day I did it. (Which I should of waited because the next was was +20C ) But the wife's hair dryer worked just fine. I started masking the area: First Coat: Second Coat: Third Coat: I did four coats all together but daylight was running out and I am a very impatient man. I used the hair dryer to warm and speed up the curing process. I used a toothpick to notch around the edges and simply peeled away the excess. Here is the finished product: Of course if I had taken my time and had a warm enclosed area I could of done a way better job. The whole time it took me to do both sides was about 45 to 60 minutes. I did mask a good area off but still managed to have a bit of over spray. Not to worry though because it comes off very easily with a microfiber rag. Here is the other side which I want to redo: So far the Protect Dip is holding up, only thing I've noticed is it attracts dust very easily. Much like any flat black material. I will update as time goes on! The snow is about to fly up here in Alberta and I will see how the product holds up. My next dipping task will be the chrome trim piece above the headlights and grille. Stay tuned!

  7. Has anyone thought about vinyl wrapping the rocker panels instead of painting?
  8. Just to clarify! My Edge did not come with the factory sub woofer and hence did not come with an enclosure. What was in place was a small cubby hole about 10"x10". That is what I modified to create an enclosure.

  10. Has anyone ever thought about doing this or seen it on any edge out there? (I realize this is for Subaru and it looks really good like this) I would really like to see a rally style edge, I have looked around a bit and haven't found much. Thoughts?
  11. I also would l think that. However, I did see an edge with a 20" light bar in that bumper area. I guess one would just have to estimate how much airflow would be lost, and if it is substantial enough to cause an issue. If you're towing I imagine it would be a bad idea.
  12. I guess it's just my way of pretending I have a Subaru. LOL I should of just bought one when I had the chance.
  13. Did some quick photo editing: Or with the smaller style lights:
  14. I've created an album: http://www.fordedgeforum.com/gallery/album/702-2014-sel-subamp-install/
