Mag-Knight + heat gun?

I just got a full sheet of Mag-Knight and the instructions say to heat it up in the oven on a cookie sheet to make it easier to mold to the tank. I'm lacking a total of one cookie sheet, so I'm wondering if anyone tried to do this (carefully) with a heat gun? Maybe I can turn the cruel Florida sun to my advantage and let Nature do it. Any advice is appreciated.

Set the bike in the sun with the mag knight pieces. Move them around and get them where you want them. I used a hair dryer rather than my heat gun. Less chance of damage. Just keep heating and smoothing the pieces out.
