Job done...almost. Used the Steinel gun. Started at either 120F or 140F, don't remember which. Kept raising the temp 20F at a time and finally felt it was pliable enough at 240F. Clamped the flanges on either side to the workbench with separate clamps and let it cool. 98% there. Just a little springback that I may or may not bother with.
