Maybe fatboy or someone else with experience can answer this for me....I've had my fci for 5 years or so, and when I went to clean my filter last. I noticed I over tightened my clamp and now my fci is bulged in. Can I heat it up and re- shape it? It's been sitting for a few days without the filter on and it has not returned to round. Now that it's been collapsed, it would seem that it will collapse easier now even if I somehow get it to return to the original shape? Anybody have any ideas? My bad, I don't know my own strength sometimes and cranked it down too much!

How do you tighten your filter clamp?

I feel it would be tedious task to get it warm enough to make the plastic flexible, and get it perfectly round again. Maybe Fatboy has a few tips. I'm sure he will get you taken care of
