These are the stock headlights off my 06. I got the first one apart, second one is baking now. Here's a pic of it pulled apart. Wasn't to bad to get them apart after i baked it longer.

See, i like how you blacked out the side turn lenses, i am doing the same thing. Yea, I hear ya on the screw driver, i have one with a hook on the end of it, let them bake a little longer after scraping it once with that, then they came right apart. Plenty of RTV on hand for the re assemble.
