Default Got my Corners!

I got my new corner lenses today, i'm wondering if i should try to pry them apart, wait for the meet for people to dremel them apart, which won't work cause they need to be sealed up then...

Time to get the hot water ready!!!

Yeah you dont need a dremel if you got really hot tap water.... and a flat tip screw driver.... then its easy and it doesnt hurt the all great splendor of the new corners.

Why do you think i had to order new ones last week? Someone was clearing corners and had problems. On the part of the corner that overlaps to the main headlight was cracked. When i was heating it up, and prying it apart like RPB said, that crack messed me up on the last edge! It caused another crack and i had problems. Damn these things are clean.

Just take your time and don't force anything and you'll be fine.
Thinking about misting the orange bulbs silver already.

I'll bring it to the meet, you can figure out if you want it then or not. All you do is go to walmart, go to the automotive section, find clear RTV silicone, and patch it up. Or spend the $17 and shipping like i did for my new ones...
