I'd have thought she'd be more upset with putting them in the oven than getting paint on the rug :icon_lol:

Great thread! Great little project! I've wanted HD lights, but was never excited about the price, and the knockoffs are, well for lack of a better description, knock offs...When it warms up or I have some time off I'm going to have to do this!

In the directions about the oven it says to wait 10 mins.. did u wait 10mins with the door open?

I usually use a heat gun.. but i've heard the oven works easier.. just more time consuming..
No you do not leave the door open.

You want to keep the door closed to keep the heat in. If the door is open, the heat will only concentrate on the bottom potentially melting your light.

Still haven't wracked up the nerves to throw my lights in an oven, I got a powdercoating dedicated oven now, maybe I will grab a spare set and try them out. Thanks for DIY post!
