I have the Elite Model SdAnh 115 trailer and the main platform is bowed and twisted. I have dipped it in almost boiling water and quickly clamped it down, but still resumes the bowed and twisted shape when removing the clamps. Any ideas? Really don't want to scratch build the platform.

Thanks

Clamp it down and heat it, with a blow dryer.
