Bent bumper

I bought a formula with the front bumper cover stored in the car for 23yr. The bottom lip on one side is bent up so it won't fit the bumper on that side. Can they be heated and reshaped? That's probably how it got out of shape. Hot inside the car and laying wrong

I'd say a heat gun is your best option.....its worth a try!

Only took about 20 minutes and was able to get most of the Flaw's out.
