The cooler is all good. I'll try that to bend it back - pretty much what I was thinking.

It should bend back pretty easy without hurting it. You might want to use two wood 2x4s.
edit: Drill two holes in one of the boards to make room for the rivet nut inserts on the guard.
Put the guard between the two boards and press them together with a vice, a press, or some large c-clamps. Just make sure you don't flatten out the original "kick" in the guard. This should get the guard close to flat again. You might have to do a little tweaking after you get done. The aluminum might have a little "spring" to it.

Keep us posted.

Cheers,
Mark
