Easy fix for warped rear vert panels

Postby blkvrtswp » Mon Feb 16, 2015 8:01 pm

Shake off the snow, vert people!
:sad:

I had typically warped rear vert panels, as the pictures show. Plus a crack. I heated the plastic up with a heat gun until it was very floppy but not melting. Then I clamped it to some pieces of wood and let it cool down.

It worked great on the gap by the door latch. I was going to add a third screw there, but not now. I also was able to bend the tip back into place quite nicely. We'll see what happens when it gets about 80 degrees though!

VERY nice! Huge improvement. Wish I had thought of that when I was building mine. Looks great.

Thanks photofucket. I don't have the time to redo all my threads so.....this is now useless along with all my other how-to posts. I guess everyone is on their own.
