Hopefully it does, maybe high temp paint then? Then you'll also have paint for rotors maybe?

The wife will never know....

Well, it was obviously due to not enough drying time on the paint, because the one I cleaned is still purty.

Guess I have my project for this weekend.

Took me about an hour each to open. They are sealed shut. I pried it apart a bit with the widest flat tip screwdiver I had, and then carefully ran an old, flexible, fliet knife inside the joint to cut the glue. (I only cut myself twice)

I started at the top, so that once I had the top and both sides open, I could break the rest of the glue free like opening a giant clam, with carefully applied brute force.

Resealing was done with a bead of silicone glue/sealant in the joint, and then more along the outside for good measure. I hate when they get wet inside and fog up.

Tried taking pics, but I needed both hands to open, and the glue didn't show when closing.

Just be extremely careful. The entire housing is glass, front and back. DO NOT RUSH THIS JOB!! DO NOT RUSH THIS JOB!! DO NOT RUSH THIS JOB!!
