Straightening Bent Die-Cast Cab Roof January 30 Update

Attached are two photos of damage incurred during shipping.  The time and circumstances between delivery and opening the package leave me with no recourse but to attempt to fix this on my own.2021-01-12 14.30.272021-01-12 14.30.39

My plan is to use a contour gauge to trace the positive and negative contours of the front of the cab onto two blocks of wood to create top and bottom forms of the roof curve and the sandwich the rear edge of the cab between the forms and slowly tightening with "C" clamps.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
