Brand New Rock Guard Looks Bent

Just got a new rock guard for my 1971 Overlander from Out of Doors Mart and upon removing the bubble wrap the bottom edge looks bent, almost sort of caved in towards the middle. Is this normal or should it be straight? The weird thing is that its a very symmetrical bend, like it was done that way on purpose and not the result of dropping it or damage while shipping (and there was not visible damage to the box). Will contact Out of Doors Mart tomorrow to ask them. Thanks.

Yeah looks bent. Probably got smashed in transit. It will most likely bend back just fine. You'll need to bend the sides in to fit tight to your Airstream anyway.

Yes prob will bend back, but I would not try until you get the vendor’s permission.
