everyone seems really nervous about doing this (i was also) but the temp never really gets hot enough to melt anything except the glue... honestly you can almost bare-hand them right outta the oven except the metal (ouch) the reason i did the foglight first is to see if i was comfortable doing this. after the first one its a breeze

difficulty scale 2 out of 5
nervous scale 4 out of 5

can this be posted to the DIY page?
