Can someone please tell me how to do the SS/Calias/HSV headlight conversion for a VY berlina. I gave it a stab today and got nowhere. I didn't use the oven so I don't know how soft the glue is meant to be but I used a hairdryer for ages and when I used the flat blade screwdriver, it just bent the back half of the light surrounding the front half and didn't seem to remove the glue at all. I know a few people have done this so any help is great.

For those who don't know the conversion, here's what I'm talking about.

Thanks for the quick reply. I think I might just give the oven option a go as I'm sick of sitting there with a hair dryer. Just gotta make sure I don't end up cooking them.

Pre heat and just slip them in for a minute at a time. Shouldn't take too long for them to get tacky.

Haven't had time to do it yet. Might give it a go tomorrow. The weather isn't the greatest either so I don't know if I want to paint in these conditions.
