Hello all; Merry Xmas and happy new year.
I have a M-88 body which has been slightly squashed oval shaped, at the air cleaner end.
I think I might be able to straighten it out, but I'm not sure how the metal will react to the localised heat.
Would the metal suddenly become liquid like aluminium, or can it be worked in a (cherry red) plastic like state, and allowed to cool, without introducing any stress cracks.
I'm guessing it would be a specialist repair, and a bit beond my backyard workshop.
Any-one experienced with this type of repair????
