ok, i'm no profesional, but i have a 50 chevy fleetline with alot of curves. i baught those durablocks, and love them. there are only so many durablocks vs. so many different curves on a car, so sometimes i had to look around the garage and find what i could use to do those funky curves. whenever i had an outside curve that was a pain i used one of those black 3-m rubber squeeges, the bigger 3 x 4 inch ones you would use when wetsanding. i would put my sticky back paper on it. you can run it under hot water to make it more supple an it will conform to your surface. put the paper on it after you give it a bend in the way you want it to stay, so when your sanding it won't get any kinks in the paper and use the x and straight across patern. worked like a charm for me.
