Well Thanks guys, if you are going to try this, these are not normal LED strips, these ones have the diodes on the edge of the strip rather then down the center. Not sure who would make them in the US, mine are made here in Canada:

If you can get the stupid thing to fit in an oven, they are supposed to be fairly easy, my apartment size oven was about 6 inches too narrow, so I had to use a heat gun, took about 30 mins to get them open, but much longer to reseal them.

I have been told the oven method is preheat the oven to 150, turn it off and then put the headlight in for about 5 mins to soften the sealant, and then do it again to soften the sealant so you can put them back together (or you could clean them up and use new sealant)

Those leds look paper thin did they cause problems when sealing?

They are taped to the inside of clear lense, right in the corner, you have to take the chrome/black filler section out just like you are going paint it. It makes it tight when putting the filler piece back in, but it does fit. It is no where near the part that seals the assembly back together.

Oh and these ones I got, you can cut a certain points, to make them the size you need (instruction s on the website)
