Yes! I used your plain o' blue masking tape used for painting the inside of a house or something. It took off a few small patches of the reflective stuff. Mine were completely unnoticeable, so you shouldn't have anything to worry about unless it took large patches out.

For the ones that are pulling the chrome off the headlights. How are you applying it to that section?

I never press it down onto the lights. I always go around the edge with some tape then, basically let it sit up never touching the chrome part.

I have a some little spots of the Chrome peeled. I'm waiting for the silicone to dry as im typing. It looks sweet so far!

My wife was cool about the oven but she was freaking out about the lights she thought they would melt. "f*ck the oven you are going to ruin your truck!!!!!!" Her words. I just laugh and put a light in. It was classic.

Yes people have had this problem. Usually due to quality of tape or the fact that they have pressed the tape down onto the chrome parts.
