How to straighten a warped harp cover?
« on: July 18, 2010, 06:15:44 PM »
I was about to start painting my harp cover when I noticed it's slightly warped on one edge. Is there an easy way to bend the plastic back in shape? Will a hair dryer & some clamps do the trick?

Hey I like that method. No work.

Lucky for me the warp is in a convenient spot; the left edge lip is curved inward. So I can probably just hang it by that lip and let it straighten itself out by its own weight. Thanks, I'll give it a few days.
