I've read where they are heating them for about 10 minutes in a regular house oven at 200 degrees (get oven up to temp and turn off, then stick light housings in). Then they are able to seperate the housing.

Been thinking about something like this too but haven't got the nerve yet.

the oven works ok but you gotta reheat over and over and if you dont get it in the first couple it will cause the lens to get millions of tiny stress cracks from the costant temp change.
get a heat gun and have at it, the 1st one will probably take an hour and the 2nd a couple minutes, atleast thats how it was for me at first.

I think someone did at some point.... Never saw any good pictures except ones at night so I'm still unsure of how it would look.... Or I'd have given it a rip already.....
