Omelet says to put it in and out of the oven for 15-20mins at a time, as many times as needed to get it fully separated, and set your oven to 225°.
I'm also thinking that I'll only circle 1 lens, the large one for low-beams. I was thinking it might look stupid if I'm circling the high-beam lamp without a light on inside of the circle. It would also require a smaller strip & thus save a few bucks
Thanks for the tip on the wiring. I actually tried to get my housings apart about a year ago with the oven technique and t didn't work out so well. I have read that the 2008 and newer stock headlights use a stronger adhesive than the 05-07 models. And I put it in the oven 5 times, and still cracked a piece of the housing. So I got a little scared and put some new adhesive on the spot I did break free and I put them back on my jeep. lol
But next time, im gonna go big and just get the damn heat gun out. Either im gonna win or the headlights are gonna crack, Not gonna give up next time. I just got to find the time.
The only other problem I was thinking about with the led strip, is the stock halogen housing low beams aren't full circles like the stock projector housings. They are like 3/4 circles. The Halogens are like Cc cC and the Projectors are like Oc cO
So the projector housings low beams are full circle. Which would be easy to to circle with led strips. But my headlights are the Halogen, and I can't figure out how I can run the strips to still look right with the damn 3/4 "C" circles.
