Question Has anyone done this before

Okk well look i own a 1998 Bonne'ville SE With about 84 K on the dash...But let me get to the point haha..OK has anyone ever taken out the "headlight housing" and got it open by putting it in the oven for a few minutes ? I heard about it Just wasnt to to sure for how long ? and what temperature ? .But i like to hear from someone who has ACTUALLY DONE IT.Im asking this because im soon about to install audi eyebrows inside my headlights.I had people ask me why dont you install the audi eyebrows outside the headlgiht housing its easier.No ! LMaO That is dumb and would look ridiculous & thats defeating the whole purpose of custom audi eyebrows on my 98 bonne'ville SE...The point is i want them actually inside my headlight housing for the full custom effect .Thanks alot any help is definitly taken into consideration

Difference from your year to theirs is they have plastic lenses, you have glass.

Search out 1993 SLE. He made his own angle eye rings on his 93.

its pretty easy, have a heat gun handy. The 96-99 glass is more fragile than the 92-95 glass.

heat up the area you are working with and then with a wide tip screwdriver pry apart the lense from the houding. IF you not careful you will break the glass or the housing
