Has anyone taken apart a NNBS headlight??
Im thinking of buying a set of NNBS headlights to take apart and modify. Im looking at removing the amber lense and painting some parts black and possibly putting in some red halo rings. I have heard of some putting them in the oven for 15 minutes at a certain temp to allow the glue to become flexible enough to seperate them but also have heard that does not work. I seen a video on youtube of someone cutting into the lights and re-assembling with black rtv silicone but not sure I want to take that route. Any ideas guys on ripping into the lights. I think I can get a set that someone replaced with projectors for around a $100 so its worth it to me to buy them instead of experimenting on my originals.

i too have seen people putting their headlights in the oven to remove them from their shells, this does make me a bit apprehensive (with good concern, i doubt your misses wants auto parts in a piece of cookery)
You might try a heat gun or a blow dryer if you dont have an actual heat gun although you may need a specific temperature of heat that only a heat gun can provide. This is the route i'd take.
Also most of the mods i've seen involving the oven are for motorcycle retrofits (IE: Taking parts off a bmw car and adapting them to a bike) so they were less than concerned when the shell didnt need to be adhered back together. If you do go this route im not sure that simply putting everything back together and applying the heat gun to try to re-adhere the light assembly together would even work.

Be weary of Oracle lights, I've heard they are flimsy lights and the come apart months after purchase, and something about a no-return policy.
