they look awsome something im deffs going for

howd you get the cover off the tail lights tho?



Set your oven to low, burnt fingers, and maybe cracked lenses (i.e. work on some spares)


They're glued on with a goo, that goes soft when warm, idea is to get the whole light assembly warm enough to separate the goo, but without melting the plastic (it's a fine line, do not leave them in the over unattended)

You have to get the whole unit hot, a hair dryer won't be able to do it.

Reverse the process, get it hot again, the glue goes soft again.
