I Made a Rear truck Matte today for me 12 Se Hatch

OEM Cargo Matte $70
My Cargo Matte $10

I call that a win

Made a template and traced it across 6 mattes then cut it out. I position it so that theres a seem right where the back seats go up so If i lift them I just break the two top pieces off and I can still leave the Rear Section in place.

"oh nice. look into a cold air intake or cat back yet? the cai does good for gas mileage. and yeah tint is a must"

No cai that will suck up any water or hot air...too many flooded streets here some times in Fla...exhaust down the road when this one rusts out + i like the stock sound with the lunchbox delete.

SVT snorkle with a K&N panel filter will give you more gains that any cai, plus it's OEM. I would look into getting that check the BST often for SVT partouts[thumb]

You can find it at any hardware store. Try Lowes or Home Depot, they are very likely to have it.

I recently did my wheels with 1 can. But it wasn't perfect. I would recommend getting 2 just to make it nice and thick.
For prep, all you have to do is pop off the wheels, clean them with soap and water, and paint. You can mask off the tires. You can paint on them, but it also starts to peel and look bad in time. So i'd get some notecards to sit around the outer ring.
All of this should cost you less than $15
