I think you'll be stuck bending them. Good luck with that. Let us know if you need spare bits, there should be plenty floating around.

That TT is a bit of a PITA in pow esp when you get ice forming in it.
|I cant tell whether the plate has movement or flex, ie piston type. Help.
Yes, it does have flex. No piston. The flex is controlled by the lever at the toepiece. Looking down at the top of the ski with the tip facing away from you try
the left most (I) position for freest flex
middle (II) for some contact (resilient coupling)
right (III) for locked.
Those are a lot of fun to take apart. I particularly like the little rubber slotted piece that helps set the heel/toe distance and can be engaged in different positions for a bit of exercise in modulus arithmetic
My thoughts: I don't object to the plate per se. You will, however, have a hard time finding a shop that has this jig with wide feet. Then you're looking at bending the brakes. Unless you have pretty durn good shop skills and plan to do all the work yourself (paper jig? Lexan jig off the old holes?) to have the skis ready over the weekend, the shop only checking the binding release, I would suggest sitting on your hands until something cheap comes up on fleabay.
