DONT USE A HEAT GUN on your headlights. From experiance i recommend that you do not use a heat gun because it only heats small patches of plastic and sealent and you end up really messing up the plastic. Its much better if you use the oven to Heat EVERYTHING.

Daddio69 your heat gun may have worked on the small little corner marker.. but it doesnt work very well for the head light. I got my first headlight apart that way and it looked like shit. The second head light i put in the oven and it was 100 times easier and looked a piss load better.

my 2 cents
F2 RS Body Kit | FS SCT XCAL2 Custom Tune | FS Cold Air Intake | FS Stealth Exhaust | VF Engineering Rear & Driver side Engine Mounts | H&R Coilovers | Corbeau CR1 Race Seats | Hella Taillights | 18" Kazera Wheels (Black)

Thanks for bringing my Signature up to Code S2! <3
