    Anyone ever taken a pair of Offshoots completely apart?

    I'm wondering about separating the four trim pieces on the arms. I suspect they're held on by the same glue as the icons and some hot water should do the trick...but I figured I'd ask first just in case that was a bad idea.

    Thanks in advance;)

    The large trim piece slides off when you disconnect the earstem. There's no glue holding it on, it's just on with pressure. You will need something thin and flat to release it from the pressure grip.

    The smaller rear piece uses adhesive. It has two small tits to hold it in place. Just peel it off with you're fingernail. You may need new tape to reapply it if the original tape is messed up during removal

    When removing the earstem, close the stem and remove it from the bottom using the channel that cut out for that purpose.

    Got them taken apart and they're heading out tomorrow for some Cerakote! I'll post them when they're back and complete.
