That's about what I had in mind, except I was thinking about cutting out the ptex over the bulge, using clamps and plates to flatten the core back down and epoxying new ptex over it. I think the edge is still in decent shape and if I'm careful it should bend back into place.

However, I'm worried about the separation between the sidewall and the edge. If I bend the edge back (it's pushed in and down) into place it's going to leave a gap between the ptex sidewall and the edge. I've never repaired anything like that before.

There is no substitution for human competition.
