Electrical Warped Headlight Lens While Baking

  1. I was attempting an HID projector retrofit, and while baking my aftermarket smoked headlights I put a curve into the lens. Has anyone had any success with, or have tips for, flattening out such an issue? Before I plunk down another $200 on new housings...

  2. What temp did you put them in the oven at? I did a retrofit years ago, and didn't have any issues with warpage. I wouldn't trust trying to save those lenses. You may have issues with them pulling away from the housings as time goes on.
     
  3. I don't see how you could ever get them true again. Lower heat/shorter time next time I guess.
     
  4. What kind of lenses are those?
