Taking apart tail lights (04 Coupe) anyone ever do it??

I am trying to do a LED retro for my 2004 Accord Coupe and I tried to get the lens apart, but its not working as well as the headlights did. The headlights came apart very easy when heated up.

I put it in the oven to get it hot, but the bottom of the lens is coming apart put the top part is not budging and where it curves it really hard to serperate.

Should I just cut a nice, fine line with a knife to sperate the outter lens from the housing?

Anyone ever take theirs apart??

thanks

the tail light lens are fused onto the housing.. you cant really use the oven or heat gun to open them... maybe dremel out the back of the housing and then plastic weld them when u are done.
