Soldering iron works great for cutting plastic, with the sharp point it'll cut the plastic like butter, and with a little care you can do fine, detailed work with it. Used one to modify a grill to install 88-89 Chevy truck sealed beam headlights into my 96 Tahoe. Light output was far better with the individually aimed sealed beams than with the half-assed composite headlights with their cloudy lenses and preaimed brights that allowed you to either set the lows or the highs to be effective, but not both.
