I was able to get it pretty straight, not 100% but way better. Used a C-Clamp and the receiver on my truck to bend it back. I'm going to clean up the whole bracket and give it a coat of paint with some rattle cans. Debating if I should just stick with black or would it better to use white to blend in with the paint? Can't remember if any of the bracket can be seeing with the fig lights installed. Any of you guys know?
