Best way to fix a twisted or bent car body

14 May 2014 - 02:57 AM

What is the best way to fix a twisted or bent car body?

I got a car body that has been stuck in the box, probably for years. So its bit twisted and to wide on the bottom side, now the question is how can I get this back into the correct shape.

 

Tried multiple things:
- Heating with hairdryer, doesnt work. Think this is not hot enough the heat the plastic

- Put it in hotwater, bend it back and let it cool but goes back to wrong position

 

Tried the kitchen gas cooker plate to heat but I'm scared to use it too long because this is probably to much heat in the wrong places?

 

All suggestions are welcome, maybe small hand gas torch??
