    well i done my lights a couple weeks ago, everything was fine til this week cold and rainy fo couple of days and my lights filled with water... so i had to take them back out and redo... this time i took all the original silicone out and use Lexen silant, if i have any more probs i will break bad and use panel bond... hopefully its fixed this time will find out tommorrow when it rains..

    Did a couple sets with tommyxrunner a few weeks ago and it was easy as pie. Put the oven to 325 degrees then turned it off and left headlights in for 11 mins and pulled apart no problem
