^pull the 4 metal clips off that hold the lens to the rear housing, pop them in the oven for about 15-20 minutes at around 250 degrees, pull them out and separate with a knife/screw driver/anything flat, and pry the lens off. if the glue hasn't soften enough, pop them back in for another 5-10 minutes and try again


they look good. I'm more of a full-whistler fan myself, but it looks pretty good with just the face painted as well.

they are sold like that without the halo's though: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/CHEVY...#ht_1048wt_939

aka semi-whistler

yea i only had mine in the oven for bout 5 min an they seperated perfect. just be sure to rest them on a piece of wood or something so you dont melt any of the plastic. an i looked for lights like these on here an ebay an all over. never found any. an there they are. but at the same time it only took me bout $20 in materials an maybe 4hrs of my time.

yea i used a clear silicone. i removed all the old cracked stuff an just used new. some ppl will just put the lense back on an get a heat gun an re-use the old stuff but thats to risky for leaks.
