WTB Broken Headlight Assembly

I am looking for a boxster headlight assembly that is unusable. I have a set of litronic assemblies that have terrible lenses and a set of standard assemblies that have excellent lenses. I want to try some dis-assembly and would like to experiment on a already useless assembly before I end up with two useless sets. The one important thing is for the assembly to have some portion of the lens and back frame intact. I have called all of the local salvage yards and they save only re useable parts and scrap the rest so they have nothing I can use. Any help would be appreciated.

I no longer need the headlights. I have come up with a solution. I was checking for Porsche parts and came across a site that had notes about removing lenses. The method was to place the assemblies in and oven pre-heated to 200 degrees for 20 minutes and pry them apart. If not free then heat longer. I heated mine for 30 minutes and viola! the lens separated from the case, I spent many hours cleaning up the old silicone and now have a good set of headlights.
