Step 6: Breaking the halogen light

**Involves braking more glass just don't hurt yourself**

Because of the thick glass used in the reflector breaking requires some force. To stop shards of glass flying everywhere I thought it wise to put the bulb in a plastic bag, which i proceeded to crush in a vice. Remove the hopefully unscathed bulb from the broken shroud, you may need to use some pliers to break off some of the glass that is held to the bulb with the white ceramic cement.

If you want to break the lens the easy way, I found my using a propane touch and heat
the lens . The inside pressure builds up and will crack the lens.
