So a couple months ago, I installed some custom mounted LEDs in the trunk for nice and bright trunk lights. I never got around to finishing them because I didn't have the special trunk light grounding switch. I took a trip to Manchester Subaru to get the trunk latch, and here are some results. Please disregard the hanging wire in the back of the trunk, I didn't have any zip ties when I finished the install:

Sick! I like your style. This is totally worth doing. I installed the OEM trunk light and thought it was the best thing ever... until I realized it sucked. The push sensor isn't very accurate and the light is so dim.

EDIT: I'm looking in your member journal and I really like the hood light. You could become a vendor and sell a kit! The led turns remind me of some JDM VIP style! =)

It's a little complicated, but basically, find some LED modules that have screw hole for mounting, use self tapping screws to secure that, hook up the positive to the spare connector, meant for the trunk light, from the visible trunk wiring harness, and connect the ground to the special trunk striker found in the Classic Trunk Light Kit for the Impreza RS.
Can you do a DIY on the LED Trunk Light setup? This would really come in handy because the OEM trunk light isn't all that good.

I'm definitely going to have to do this to my trunk and hood now, I'm sick of using a flash light.

Slightly of topic, but what kind of switch did you use when you did your hood?

Hello, Would you know a part number or where to buy the Classic Trunk Light Kit for the Impreza RS ?
