    So I've got the headlights apart, and I'm about to paint the bezels, but I have one question: Is there an easier way to remove the old sealant rather than stick the parts back in the oven and scrape it off when it has been heated up?

    Nope, that crap is horrible. If it cools off it hardens it doesn't move.

    That's what I thought. How much of it do I need to remove do you think?

    I moved enough to put the new bead of window weld into the channel. I used a flathead screwdriver and heated up each headlight twice. It's kind of tedious but I got lazy towards the end...
