    My STi top mount

    so i got my STi topmount from a kid i know ...pretty sure he stole it from the local car graveyard , but i paid $75 for it which i think is pretty decent compared to what some are going for on here...BUT my real question is;
    There is so pretty good dents in the outside "vents", supposedly from rocks but i highly doubt it since hearing the former owner played pinball with his subie and some trees (from what i can tell there is absolutely no leaks though) i was wandering if i could just bend them back to normal or should i just leave it be?
    I'm thinking i should just leave it be because i fear if i bend stuff back to normal it will actually weaken it and actually cause a leak .
    any suggestions?

    sorry bout all the emoticons. i haven't slept for about 24 hours and im super bored

    you should be able to bend them back....some places, i know MAC tools and MATCO sell what they call a condensor comb...its pretty much as screwdriver with plastic blades on the end of it and its designed to "comb" the AC condensor so i assume you could prob. use it on like radiators and intercoolers also....

    I just use tweezers and a really small screwdriver... Once or twice a year I spend a few hours at it, including the rad/A/C. Don't leave it all bent over (the fins) as it reduces the IC efficiency.
