    Default Distorted sidescreen window

    From the It's-Always-Something department:

    I autocrossed this past Saturday. had a blast, and did pretty well. When I got home I found that my passenger side sidescreen window had become distorted/misshapen. See photo:

    Hard to photograph, but it's pretty misshapen. The doors were off the car during the autocross, lying on a tarp, but there must have been something over of under the window, and the heat (hot day) distorted it.

    Thoughts on whether this can be fixed? I was thinking carefully iron between two towels, on a flat surface. Thoughts?

    I'd put it inside a car parked in the sun and that should allow it to return to it's orig. shape once it gets nice and toasty.

    You could bring it down to Texas, and just lay it on the sidewalk for a while, till it's done.
