Straightening a Plastic chassis

I stripped my Corvette down today and have found that there is a definite kink in the rear of the chassis. On a tech block the right hand rear is 2mm off while the left is flat on the block. On the slot.It site they tell you how to straighten one of their chassis's. Put the chassis on a flat steel block and hold it down with neo magnets, next pour boiling water on it until covered and leave to cool down. Does anyone know if you can do this to an NSR chassis

Ey Up,

If you use the hot water trick, remember to support parts of the chassis which might "droop" under treatment.

Please do this with the motor pod in place, otherwise you might find it won't fit afterwards !!.

Dont ask me how I know this !!.

If done with some forethought and care, it will work reliably.
