I soaked them in very hot water, then used a dremel for one side, then pried the rest. Used goop to seal them back up. I spray painted the interior silver because it had some scratches on it, but it looks good through the clear lens.

Lots of hot water, and prying. Dremel was a BITCH, and looked like hell IMO.

Yea, dremel was a pain.

Just do it where it does not show, like underneath the black seal around the lense. I actually did this twice because the first set I chipped trying to pry it apart
