I was thinking about doing that when I replaced my headlight, but I decided against it for some unknown reason lol.

the way i have done this is preheat the oven at 350
place the light on a cookie sheet
15 sec in the over remove it and try to pry open
if not flexable enough put it back in oven 10-15 sec
once open remove the amber and place back in oven heat back up
pull it out and put it back together
while hot

Does this remove 100% percent of the yellow tint or will there still be some color to it afterward? And are the lights yellow themselves or would I need to buy yellow lights? This is the first I've seen of this and it looks like a cool idea. Just tryin to get all the facts. Thanks!
