Looks way better in my opinion. Did you have to heat it up to get the cover off or just carefully cut in between?

Thanks man, I baked it in the oven at 215 for 10-12min pulled it out and ran a butter knife from the pointy part of the light along both sides to break the seal then slowly pull the light apart. If it doesnt come apart the first time reheat for about 5-8 min.
