Default Blacked out headlights 2015 WRX base

After reading this awesome post I just had to do the same thing to my base 2015 WRX.

First step, take the bumper off!



Bumper came off easy! Next step, bake the headlights.



OK not so bad, taking them apart was pretty easy too, but man watch out for that small screw in the middle, I forgot it and broke one mount of the reflector (was able to super glue it back).

Next step, spray paint flat black.



Easy to miss nooks and crannies, easy to make things run, spray with evenly with large light passes.

And now shes done!



All in all I spent over 10 hours on this project, I would rather not do it again. Tough to get things just right and not break your headlights.

Very nice. I need to do this too. Subispeed fog light kit? How is that? I'm not sure if I want to go OEM or Subispeed kit for my base WRX.

The Morimoto Fog lights are the best fog light option for 15s

looks great.
How many screws did you have to take out to take the bumper out?
I may do it when I replace the front turn signals with LEDs.

How did you open the headlights apart? What did you set the oven to? How long did it take to be able to open them? How long did it take to seal them back?
Did you put tinfoil all around the headlight? Just underneath?

Thanks in advance for the answers, looks great!
