So if this technique can be used to separate the marker lens, what would be an appropriate heat range for the oven? the marker lens has condensation, and i am considering coloring the lens orange, or installing a strip led inside, plus it needs sealed anyway.
I would consider the taillights, but i don't want to rik breaking them trying to remove them as all the plastic on my car is brittle.
I appreciate the good advice from everyone.
Tom's comment cracks me up.
Not sure if i have a hair dryer, but i do have a 1949 magic chef oven
Like I mentioned above, put the headlight in the oven, glass down, on the rack. The moisture will evaporate through the hole. Use the lowest possible oven settings. Mine got separated in about 2-3 minutes.
I primed and painted the lens with aluminum based paint but it did not come out very bright. It still looks a little dull. I sealed it back with urethane that I got at Amazon for about $11.00 shipment included.
If you need more information let me know and I dig up more details from my archives.
