Default body lost its shape?!?

Hey guys i had my cart painted a few months ago and i am just getting around to putting it together and the sides of the piece that covers the batteries and you sit on on my 1982 ds are bowed out like 1 1/2 or so on each side? Now what do i do? any tips if i squeeze it together i am afraid i will crack it!

Not any help with your question but....I was talking to a painter today (as I'm looking to get mine painted) and he told me to "install" it back on the frame as soon as possible to let it cure in it's fianlly resting spot....

Can ya be more specific. Are ya sayin' it won't mount up to the cart, or it is on the cart and the sides are bowed out?

The body and the paint should be semi flexible. Set it out in the sun for a couple of hours before you do the install.
It should be fine if only 1 1/2" bowed.
Don't the two sides fit in a groove?
Can ya post any pics?

Wait, I'll go ask my mother in law, hers is bowed out at the bottom also! Bawahahaha!!!!

To help warm it cover it with black plastic let set for several hrs., makes it warmer than just setting in sun.
