Door bin

Fibreglass resin, get the bin nice and wet, then put weights on to get it back the correct position

I’m in the process of replacing one side that was in very poor shape. New bin not that expensive and made of much stronger material.  A little tricky to fit as slight diff in length, but will be a lot nicer.  Also adding some nice lining.

I think I will put it on a flat surface, mark  which areas are out and pull them in using ratchet tensioners 

Peel off the carpet.

Clamp a piece of flat wood along its length (the more clamps the better).

Throw it in the Bath.

Let it soak for 30 min.

Take it out.

Let it dry fully (in the sun, or with a heater) while still clamped.

Unclamp and glue the carpet back on.

Job done.

Thanks Mark

why would you not leave carpet on?

So it would all dry quicker and you could be sure the door pocket itself was completely dry before unclamping. The wet carpet would be sandwiched between the wood and door pocket and so likely take ages to dry out.
