Hit a submerged rock while rolling through a mud puddle on a forest service road. I'd like to retain the spoiler if possible. At the trimmed level I have it it's a good early warning device...:)

I doubt it, it's not that kind of plastic. But, hey, it's worth a try. What's the worst that could happen? You're going to replace it anyway. Might as well remove it, heat it, and then clamp it in a jig anyway.

Every plastic I have ever encountered can be reshaped with heat. Heck, thats how its formed in the first place right?!? Be careful and I bet you can get 'er done. :) From my experience from playing with this kind of thing is wear gloves and have a spray bottle of water handy to cool it quick when you get the right shape. p.s. I like the trimmed versus the removed......

Leave it....... Lol. It's battle scars.

I ran into a pipe while parkin the boat/trailer...... scuffed it Up in one spot and it tweaked in one spot. Everytime I wash the truck, I look at it thinking to myself....."I should fix that".

But then..... It's like a fart in the wind. It's off my mind in an instant!! LOL

For a Starbucks latte you can have mine.
If I screw it up I may just take you up on that. You aren't far away. Maybe I'll come to one of the coffee get togethers you were trying to get going.

I had a similar look, ended up being mostly bent clips. Take everything off or at least that side and reset the clips, might reform on its on.

Love people who cover their license plates. Unless you have your home phone number as a plate, there's no point in blurring them out or covering them with post-its.

Some people are just paranoid. But, if you're using a flash to highlight a dark area, the reflective surface of the license plate can really screw up the photo. Especially if you're using a low level camera like a cell phone.
