Default Aft Bulkhead Bent in Shipping

Today I received a replacement Center Section Aft Bulkhead (F-01204D-1) as I could not locate the original in my shop. Iím thinking I never received it and counted the FF-01204 twice as this part doesnít look familiar. The new part was damaged in shipping (see attached photos) and I am looking for guidance on this parts viability, given the bend. Iím inclined to not try and straighten and obtain another (long lead time). What say the masses?

I would order a new one. To me, that one looks too bent to try and straighten.

Since you are thinking of ordering, go ahead and straighten. If there isnít a crease and just a bend, I think you have a decent chance of fixing. If if doesnít straighten properly, order another as you originally thought of doing.
