Can anyone write up directions on how to take apart the headlight housing so I can paint the plastic part? I've heard of people doing it but I'm not sure how. Any instructions? Pictures? Thanks y'all.

Usually it involves low heat in an oven to soften the glue. There is a complete thread to this end in the Gen 2 forum. Contact Erki in the Gen 1 forum....he knows how to do it.

I've preheated my oven to 250*F and put my headlight (one at the time) for 10 minutes exactly. After 10 minutes in oven they open up with out any issues.

Ughh... I just realized that my 02 doesn't have that extra lip in the headlight that you took off and painted, it's instead a whole piece. Any ideas on what I can do?

Also seeing your profile reminded me that you put that Tundra emblem infront of your truck, I went around my truck and the previous owner debaged my truck. :-( I want your truck... haha. But yeah hopefully someone will give me some ideas. I was also thinking about buying the 05 headlights but I don't know if it'll connect right up since you have that extra light and I don't.
