I need help modifying a Yongnuo YN560EX Flash for UV Photography. What is the best way to remove the clam shell head from the body. Any help would be appreciated.

Be very careful because the capacitor in a flash can hold enough charge to stop your heart.
If you can't find instructions somewhere, then cut the front plastic out with a Dremel.

Will do. Thanks. I did read that before I bought the flash.

I looked for a video about dissembling the flash you have, found one, but it didn't really look very complete to me, it didn't show how to remove the front.
There is probably such a video somewhere.
