It's like that on both sides. not damaged or anything. Can't believe the manufacturer of that quarter has suggested people just bend that over when that flat area is narrower at the ends. My cheapo brake won't work and plus it isn't straight anyhow. I would have to do it with my taco grips and then smooth it out with a dolly. Getting it smooth would be no problem but I see issues down the road with having to mess with the quarter glass tilt and/or having a rough time opening it up cause I didn't make it narrow enough at the ends, or even a huge gap...

The good thing is I can try to make the bend on the new quarter and measure it up to see how it turns out and if it's not looking good I can always scrap that idea cause the old piece is still in the old quarter, and maybe think of something just below it.
