Maz, I did mine, Pete and Paul did some..

The art is to get hold of a hot heat gun to soften the glue to seperate the lens.. You can get away using 2 hairdryers but it takes longer, but less risk of melting anything.

Once the cluster has been seperated it's straight forward from then on.

yea Maz use Heat gun but as long as you point it away from the lens you should be ok :whistling: it takes about 15-25 mins to do one light :winky: then from there you can do what you like with it B)

I did this to my Supra.

Basically, Pre-Heated the Oven, put in headlights for 5 mins (Scary I know) makes the glue melt, so you can take apart, then took the chrome backing to a pro to spray them. Put headlights back in oven to melt glu again, then stuck on plastic cover and Voila! I know, breif explanation, but im at work!! lol. For more Info, check out www.mkivnet.co,nz

Worked a charm! Im going to do this to IS soon..
