I'm thinking of buying this used upright freezer

My question is the shelves seem to have lines running through them do you think I could bend the shelves back without screwing the freezer up or should I not get this?

Some people have carefully bent the coolent lines back and it worked. Bobby_M is one I believe. You have to be very careful, and lightly heat the lines to do it. Personaly I would only do it if I got the fridge for free and had no "skin" in the game.
