I have it fitted up to the bottom of the drivers door window, that is where it is getting complicated due to a "valley" type of bend which is on another bend. my homemade bead roller (don't have a die like that) and metal break won't do it, so gotta figure something else to work. maybe fab up some kind of a form over a piece of pipe and press it with a jack under my truck trailer hitch? I dunno.
Try bending both sharp bends then clamp one of them in a vice and bend the other one up putting the gentle bend in the middle needed. I hope that makes sense. This may not work, I am just thinking about a way to do it.

I have a special place in my heart for the F-100. This is my dad's truck that he put a 364 Buick in 1966. I drove it in highschool, went on my first date to a drive in, smoked the tires thru the school parking lot. That's me at the back.



And how it looks today, my brother restored it and still has it today.



Forgive me if I told you this all before, my mind is full of lacquer paint.

That's the bed, fenders and frame I made my trailer out of. And I even have that wood that is under the bed tops. That wood came from the walls of the kitchen of the house I lived in when I was born, about a 100 year old house on my families homestead.
