I will proly be putting the lines (or a version of them) back in. I cant fircken get these things to delaminate though... anyone have any idea how to speed up teh process for the entire light?

I have ALL the black stuff delaminated except for the very bottom edge appears to be sealed better than the rest of it... Ive tried an oven at 200* for 20 minutes; 250* preheated for 5 minutes... but i am worried at which point these things melt...


Yes, i am TRYING to delaminate them.... help me here...

Once the delam is started, mineral spirits seemed to help, but should i just put more heat on them? Will that help without melting them?

Need advice.

well i finally got it all done on the passenger light, but not without its fair share of small annoying cracks. I think delaming as much as possible by hand then using mineral spirits to eat at the glue holding the two together. Then a little pressure in some good places and it should be good... now i just need two more to do the final product on....
