How did you guys go about removing the lenses? Mine is set to arrive some time this week and I think I'd like to do the 'diffuse' lens mod to get a consistent yellow glow in the eyes.

If memory serves the NUUK lenses have some kind of trace adhesive added to the edges to keep them stationary. They won't come out with a suction cup.

I remember having to dismantle the helmet, take the LEDs out, feed a little bit of buffer material into the cavity of the eye socket (to help protect the lenses from the tapping - like a cotton ball or something) - and, then, tap them out from the inside with something that will fit through the LED hole... like a matchstick or something...

You will want to be careful to tap very gently or else risk marring the inside of the lenses with your tool... but the extra cushion should help...
