Yes, I do. After multiple failed attempts at removing the lens, I stopped after snapping off part of the housing, specifically the mounting tab that sticks out considerably. The whole assembly is rather large and it's quite difficult to try and get the two apart without resting the assembly on something...and it's bad to put much force on areas like that when it's at 250*F.

I was never able to even come close to removing the two pieces, and the glue never really seemed to soften up considerably. If you do find a way let me know, I'm certainly interested in painting mine. I tried using an oven and heat gun, both to no avail. With the heat gun the glue got plenty soft but I was clearly overheating the plastic.

the process of baking and painting is still the same, only the removal of the headlights from the car will be different.
