Headlight Inserts/Lenses
 
I've been trying to paint my headlight inserts black, but the previous owner used some silicone around the headlight lens, and I can't get them to come apart. I try something different everyday. My car has the chrome inserts, which look quite distasteful, but they came with the Angel Eyes that were already on the car when I bought it.

Any suggestions on what I should do to take the lens off in order to access the trim piece?

Thanks

Distasteful yes, functional yes, please don't paint them black, theres a reason theyre silver and reflective. I'm talking about the reflective bowls, sorry for the confusion.
Theres tons of DIYS for removing the lens
SEARCH angel eyes and theres tons of headlight removals.

I used to be a fan of the reflective look, but I've had a change of taste. All other trim on my car is black, and I want to make the headlights match.

Thanks, I'll look at these tonight when I get a chance.
