I was thinking of putting the concave side in a pan of boiling water to soften it, then try and push that side back out to its original shape from the inside with a 90 degree bent 1/2'' pipe. Do you think it will work? It has been in this shape for at least 30 years.

Just seal it properly and drown it in a tub of very hot water and it might pop out!......if it still needs persuading place air gun nozzle in small opening and keep under pressure and use hot air gun delicately around distorted area...Good luck

I basically used Sketchl's method. I put the concave side in hot water and slowly it popped back into proper shape. Not quite perfect but much better than it was. Now I have a good spare.
