I dont know about a yellowing effect. I did get a very very slight chameleon effect, not noticible at all. By the time I got to the second light I had it opened after the second oven set (15 mins at 300).

I initially had fears about putting a headlight in an oven, but seriously it will be fine. First time I put it in the oven I stood there and watched it through the window just in case, it was fine and I just went about my business the next few times. What I did, in case I messed something up, was I bought a spare off eBay so I wouldnt mess my regualar ones up, and "practiced" on that one to make sure I could do the mod. It worked flawlessley and now I have a spare unpainted headlight laying around, I should prolly sell it, no more need for it.
