honestly not hard to take apart, its getting them back together without leaks thats the tricky part. I bought some of these pressure clips to help keep the pressure consistent around the housings. Since these lights are so big, they'll definitely be helpful

I've heard that some people put the headlights in the oven to heat up the glue to separate the housing? Is that what you are doing or is there a better method?

that is the best way from what i've read and done in the past. Bake em at 200-250°F to soften up the glue/adhesive and pull em apart! If you watch videos from some of the retrofitting shops, you will always see 1-2 old ovens in the background lol

a small town in way up northeast
Got a little bit of snow yesterday. Lol

Took a bit over 2 hrs to get wifey out so she could get to work. Im not even halfway done with cleanup in the pic. The end of the driveway alone was pushing 3’ x 2’ of banked up snow from the plow cleaning the road all night.
