Is this rear window trim good or bad?????

I just got my new rear window trim that is suppose to be NOS. I noticed that a piece about 2" long is deformed. This could be due to storage but I am wondering if it will go back to the original shape?

i think it should work itself out with heat from the sun and being stretched out. if not, you might try a heat gun with caution.

I'd say bad considering he sold it to you as NOS. Looks like someone bent the piece to save space during storage. If it where metal then a good trim repair person could probably get that back out 95%, where it would be barely noticeable. Being rubber though, there is no chance that it will ever be NOS quality again. A heat gun will permanently damage a piece of rubber that thin, it will never be right again afterward. I'd be sending that back, and contacting Paypal for a forced refund right about now.
