Question Clearing corners

I saw the thread on scooby mods a couple months ago, but i cant find it now. I'm trying to find the temp and time to bake the lights to separate the housing. Can someone point me in the right direction?

so the whole purpose of the oven is to warm up the epoxy sealing around the housing? i have a heat gun, but it might be tough.

ask hope what happens when you apply alot of heat and to much time in said heat, i believe 220 degrees and 20 min is correct just becareful how you position your light on the oven tray, otherwise you will have some stripes melted into the lense

i think you will really like HID if you go that route. ppl always say that they cant see with em, like they arent bright enough. apparently they have never ridden in a car that has em, mine are pretty bright
