    Well i decided to go for it, using this fine vibrating cutter i set about the task



    iwas abit worried that i mght break the locating lugs but taking things steady the lenses soon came off




    Then it was onto sanding with some1500 paper and masking the beam reflector

    i then waited an hour then sprayed the bits matt black , then its justa case of putting it all back together










    The black (fix all) is what we use at work its just the same as sikaflex , gonna leave them till tommorrow as i have the day off to refit them and do the bumper
    Big thanks to Woodsta for his how to
