Exterior side trim

After the ravaging success that was my front bumper respray I’ve decided to do the same with my side trim. A few them seem a bit bent out of shape, so bend away from the door a little, even when they’ve got all the clips.

I could try and tiger seal them on, but that’s probably a last resort. Thought about getting a heat gun, heat it up and try and bend it back?

Anyone done something similar? They are original VW so I’d rather salvage them then buy some copies

I had one broken clip location, stuck it back with Tiger seal.  Not yet on the car so don't know if it works.  Appears strong though.

I have a couple of broken points on my drivers side strip. I tried super glue to hold the retainers in the strip with some success. I found the strip quite maluable.
