ballcap question

ok, so I got a ballcap that I picked up. The bill part seems to have not as tough as most of them are. It's a little more flimsey (sp?) then I'm used to. I have tryed to adjust it for that curved bill look but it seems to have a permant crease in it that's offset a bit to the side. Is there anyway to correct this? I have wet down the bill a few times and it really cant tell if it's helping or not. Should I keep trying this or try another plan of action?

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

......where.......are ...........the.........misplaced.........periods?

Ballcap? as in a hat?

Wetting down the brim ain't gonna help. Most likely it's plastic. Throw a rubber band on it overnight, should help form it.

they actually have bill "curvers" at most hat places at the mall that will give it the perfect curve

as noted b4 use a rubber band, just put something inside to help maintain the shape, most ppl use a baseball, or i have seen a tennis ball or even a can of pop to give it something for the bill of the hat to form around.

i have also heard if it is a plastic bill, as compared to a cardboard one, you can put the hat in a clothes dryer to heat the bill a bit b4 you try to form it to the shape you want.

typing on iPhone. So all I gotta do is hit space bar two times quickly and it tosses in a single period.

This brim has cardboard in it. But it's really shifty material cardboard. That's why I ask if anyone else has delt with this before. I can feel the crease in there and trying to figure out ur there is a way to try to correct it.........................

So the iPhone fixed your punctuation? At least Apple isn't completely useless.
