    wagon rear interior panels warping

    Anyone else have a problem with the floor panels in the rear of wagons wanting to bow upwards? Every panel in the rear does it in my car. The carpeted panels were glued to the foam from the factory but over time the things have all curled in on themselves and peeled the glue off the foam. I took a heat gun to the panels (they are plastic) and they flattened right out, but as they cooled they bowed upwards again. Anyone know any tricks to keeping them flat?

    Did you get them wet? Mine are still perfectly flat.

    Didn't get them wet. Also, the material is a honeycomb matrix of plastic, so I doubt water would do anything to them.

    Hmmm... ok well what about heat? Has that area been exposed to any extreme heat recently? What about has it gotten caught by any cargo that may have shifted and warped the panels?
