    Help needed with repairing Tomahawk blades

    I currently have a second Tomahawk that I'm hoping to restore to some degree before offloading it. The big problem is with the blades - most of them are bent and there are stress marks on the connectors. What's the best way to restore them without causing the colour to fade or warping the plastic?

    Heat. Plastic becomes flexible with heat, and then will reharden as it cools it’s summer time, leave them in your car for a few hours and they will become pliable- then lay them flat as they cool and they’ll be nice and straight.

    Penny: Yeah, yeah. My mom gave me the same lecture about my virginity. Gotta tell you, it was a lot more fun taking it out and playing with it.

    I agree with mild heat. You could also try soaking them in hot water for 30 sec. at a time and let them cool while laying them flat.
