I got my corners out and I'm trying to separate the clear lans from the black backing. I'm broken my xacto knife twice. How exactly am I suposed to do this?

The times I've put alot of pressure on the wedge I'd start to hear cracking noises and the clear lens would start to develop a hairline crack.

What do I have to do to get this off? I have no problem with patience. I can go slow and easy, but I don't even see how it's supposed to work.

Please don't post telling me to send you them and you'll do it for me. If I can't figure this out, they're going back inot the car cause I need to drive it.

Thanks!

Hey man my friend and I did mine, and all we had to do was take a metal wedge looking thing, kinda like a real wide flathead screwdriver, I'm not sure of what it's called, but we just kinda forced it carefully between the black plastic and the clear lens on the corner of where the orange part is and it broke the seal, then the orange peice just falls out of the corner :)

I ended up breaking the lens... really bad. It is now in hundreds of little pieces in my garbage can.

So I took out the orange lens and I used the styrene to make a whole new lens for the thing. I think it looks good.

Seemingly stupid question, but when you guys put in clear corners, do you switch to orange bulbs or leave in the clear ones?

I'm worried that leaving in clear bulbs after getting clear corners would get me unwanted attention from the police.

I masked them off and painted the white trim flat black. Makes them look at a TON better, the white trim made them look bigger than the headlights.
