I remembered this post while trying to figure out what to do w/ the lights on my 97, and soon realize that no one else had really done this really cool idea.

One thing I would like to see, are a couple of full frontly shots of the car, just to get the overall look. I think I've pretty well got it in my head, and I like it.

Yea I'm just worried on how-to seperate the glass lense from the housing, without cracking or breaking it.

Merlin, try heating a utility knife blade and running it between the glass and the plastic. It should seperate them without hurting the glass. Then just clean off the remaining adhesive with whatever you prefer.
