Default DIY: 2nd Gen Headlight Color Change

Throw them in the oven for 10 minutes at 220 degrees F then start pulling them apart gently like this:

then put it back together and put the lens on and heat it up again so you can press the glue back into the seams and seal it. THe glue is sticky but I guess I'm just stating the obivious. Here's how mine came out:
