Default Help! Attempt at Clearing Tails has failed!

Is there anyone that has cleared their tails live close to North Dakota?? I just cleared my heads no problem, but my tails were another story. I tried to heat em and pry em, but that didn't work for me, and I don't have something to cut with, and I really don't wanna cut em anyways. I was wondering if someone would be willing to come up this weekend and help. I can help pay gas or miles? Or if someone has a very, very detailed write up. I've followed a few, and I'm still STUCK.

Thanks

Didn't break em, but enough cracking to scare me a bit... I think I made 2 little cracks, but not noticeable.

Put 'em in the oven on the lowest temp 20-30 min, and use 2 screwdrivers and a razor. get an extra set of hands and move slow. It will make some noise, heat, razor and extra hands are key. Tail lights were easy for me -- center on the other hand. "YOU CAN DO IT"
