I have not done it personally but there have been a few people that have talked about it. Check and see if you can find the threads.. Sorry I can't help further..

It's easy, just very time consuming. You need to take your time and not rush it. Remove all bulbs and wires and bake for at a low temperature. 200-275degF for 15-20min. Be careful what you touch (bulbs and painting surface). It's easy to contaminate your work.

it's actually quite easy. seems very intimidating but pretty simple. it took me about an hour and a half, i didn't paint my lights though, just cleared them. here's another thread on nasioc for the 04/05 lights. same method pretty much.
