You can pull the lights apart and paint them black.

Thats what I did with mine when I put the angel eyes in.

I think I have picks in my journal.

I like ur car! Only thing that scares me is with ur lug nuts like that can't people take them really easily since there not a lock key lug nut on there? I don't want to be a rain cloud, but just tryin to look out for the safety of a fellow subie owner. =)

I sprayed wax remover/paint prep on them then wiped them down again.

I used Rust-Oleum Enamel primer and then flat black finish. It help up on my Legacy for five years with out fading or chipping and now its been over a year on the STI with no problems. I used it to paint my side vents and side badges too and its still holding up. I love that stuff.

Sick GR. Im looking into getting the same wheels and shift knob that you have. Did you go with the blue or red base? Not sure which would look better in my car. Blue to match the exterior but im thinking the red one matches interior better cuz of the sti emblem in front of the center console.

Did you have to do anything to your fenders to clear those RZ's? I have eibach springs, are those stiff enough cuz I always hear people saying u need a stiff suspension to run that offset. Thanks.

i actually put the knob in my truck... i didnt like the feel of it in the subi. but it came blue and i just put some red vinyl over the blue to hide the COBB letters. the wheels fit fine in the front. the rears needed to be rolled. that might change when i get new tires because im planning on going wider.
