    Ok, all you metal heads. steel, that is...
    I just noticed my door is bent...
    lower right corner about 1/4 of the door has been bent in, causing a nice ripple to the closing edge.
    Question, is there an easy way to straighten this out?
    Ok, prob not an easy way...but can it be done without a press?
    or a BFH???

    Ok, here are some pics.
    this looks a lot like another Gottlieb door I have.
    Is this a common result of trauma to the door?
    and can it be straightened?

    sooo many questions...

    That's what a door looks like after it's been pried open with a big screwdriver. Either someone broke into this machine at some point, or some previous owner lost the front door key and didn't know how to drill out the lock.

    Bent metal - including GTB front doors - can often be straightened out by hammering, bending, or using a press of some kind. The catch is you need to have some skill when doing this or it's not going to come out straight, and/or the area you try to straighten isn't going to look very good.

    You might need to take the door to an auto body shop to straighten it out. Won't be cheap so it may be a better idea to simply buy a brand new door from Pinball Resource.
