thanks fellas some tips though.

when you pull the headlight out of the oven and pull it apart let the lens (clear lens,chrome bezel and orange reflector) cool down first because if you pull the orange reflector off while its hot as soon as you pull it off it looked warped and mishaped.so be patient let it sit so it can cool and keep its shape .i learned the hard way my passenger side has a slight warped looked. ! also if u have a small oven and its somewhat of a tight fit id suggest going with 290 deg. mines somewhat small and 300 gave a me a little bit of crows feet. cant see it during the day whatsoever just when you have your lights on and even then it doesnt look bad. just a heads up guys.
