Is this question directed at HeMi? Laughing

You're going to have a hell of a time removing the covers without bending the plastic/damaging the paint. If I had to make a suggestion, I would say to work from the taillight circles outward.

You're pretty likely to either ruin your lens, the covers, or both.


Why are you trying to remove them?

Very easy, I removed my set twice before I sold them, and I removed them from a junk yard car tp put on my Impala... for the corners, just bake them in the oven @ 200 for about 10-15 mins, then take fishing line and floss from the flat side to the curved side(it would be much easier if you had someone holding it for you wearing oven mits). The panel is the same thing but you would need a big oven, I have access to my inlaws kitchen where they make food for the gun club.

But if you get caught up, don't force it, just place back in the oven for another 10 mins

I meant to add: use some small 2X4 pieces to put the lamps on... and if you leave the oven open an prop the panel in there, you could probably get it off 1/2 at a time
