How do I make the plastic rear-panel snap into the aluminium top?

Texto:

(Mac mini generation 1 - 4; Early 2005 - Late 2009)
 
I have seen many Mac mins that have been opened. When people put back the top housing, they bent the rear plate so that the plastic no longer snaps into the aluminium top, leaving a small gap and a slightly bent plastic part.
 
Is there any chance to fix this and get back the original look?
 
Here is an image for comparison: the two Mac minis on top are fine, the other Mini has the gap I mean.
