Headlights are baking

Well I'm finally doing it, headlights are getting painted up tonight. One headlight is in the oven right now getting toasty. Hopefully everything goes well, I'll post pics when I'm done

Yea thats what I saw that Matt P did on a post I saw, said preheated to 250 turn it off and stick them in. Am I supposed to leave it at 250?

dont turn the oven off dude. keep it on, put them in for 5 to 10 mins, pull them out and start prying. if no success put them back in, just have to keep doing it. it's nothing else holding the lens but the silicone.

When I did my lights on my old car I did it differently, I left them in and pryed--but if that's what Matt did then I would follow that. Maybe your oven didn't get hot enough? Or stay at that temperature long enough?
