I used 200 degrees at 5 mins at a time to take the original aftermarket lights apart. Thanks for the tip!

The low heat makes the super strong adhesive malleable so that you can get a flat head screw driver or whatever you choose in between the front clear lens and housing to open the headlight up. Trust me, that adhesive is super sticky and will stretch beyond belief lol.

^lol! Most of it is still on the front lens and in the channel where the lens fits in. Its a pain to get off whatever you use to pry them open though. If I would set the lens down on something like my bed it would stick instantly to the fabric.


UPDATE 06/15/09

OK I got the rotational alignment right now. AND WOW!!!!!!!!!! The light output is amazing and the cut off is soooo sharp and colorful. Tonight I am throwing the stockers in the oven to pull of the front lens and put it on the new and improved projector headlight. WAIT TILL YOU SEE PICTURES! :-D

Well, Jgrove, rep to you for the awesome thread. I'm pretty much convinced that this is what I need to do with my projector headlights. I've got a set of stockers on standby, and I'll swap them out soon and get to work on the projectors!
