    You have to heat it in your oven to melt the glue. Carefully pull it apart...paint, pit back together and bake it again

    Apparently the tail lights are a different plastic than the headlights and you shouldn't cook them. Never tried it but I've heard it's not a good idea.

    The tail lights are "plastic welded" together. They do not have a glue holding them together.

    Your only option is to cut with a dremel. Obviously around the outter lens, making sure you don't actually damage the lens itself. After you're in, paint away. When you're done, use the glue you thought you were baking off originally to seal them back up, then paint the outter edge on the outside of the lens to hide the dremel cuts underneath.

    Same applies to surgery, skinning potatoes, tinting windows, etc.

    It's really not hard at all.

    Lmao sneezing while performing surgery? Ouch.

    Other examples: disarming a bomb, performing dentistry, sniping a man holding a hostage, when the doctor tells you to "turn your head and cough", etc.
