headlights

when you guys did them did they eventually come off easy when you had them at the right temperature or did you have to pry them off

I did mine at 250 for like 13 min and they came off with a little prying. Just be careful cause the plastic will bend if your prying too hard. If you still can't get them open after 20 minutes, bump the temperature up.

I pried, basically once you break the seal, itll come right off. I chipped the edge just a tad bit, but nothing you can see...

Yeah same here, once you get it back on though you'll never know. Make sure you don't leave them in there too long though.
