WOW! lost of replies. Anyways For Paint I used Krylon Gloss black paint. You could use fusion paint but the regular stuff works well. As far as the clear lense, yeah it may accelerate the aging process but on my WRX after a year I had no evidence on the lense becoming cloudy.

If you don't feel comfortable enough oven baking the whole lamp you can use a hairdryer/heatgun, but it will take longer to do.

Oh and yes you can do it with a gas oven, did my WRX lights with a gas oven and it worked perfectly.

If thats true about your WRX then glad to hear it, I was just giving a heads up because a lot (tons) of guys on the Contour site have tried it and shortley thereafter the damage has begun.
