This Foxy Lady cocktail pin has a plastic apron that had a bit of a warp in it. Think the low oven trick would work for flattening it out? Maybe stick between some sheets of glass when heated a bit? I've had success using the method for smaller playfield plastics but nothing this big. Thanks.

I have put plastics between 2 playfield glasses and left them in the sun in the back of my truck almost all day on a warm sunny day. Worked well and you wont do any damage.

I wouldn't. While the risk may be low the consequences are ruined plastics that are unobtainable. Use the sun method.
