Default How to Bend Window Channel?

I've purchased some repro stainless window channels for the quarter windows on my '46 Ford convertible. Now that I have them, I don't know how to bend them in the quarter window arc shape to mount into the top iron curved piece without crimping them. How do others do this or suggestions o how to do this. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Default Re: How to Bend Window Channel?

While not dealing directly with window channels, here's a link to a thread about a year ago dealing with fabric roofs. http://www.fordbarn.com/forum/showthread.php?t=53594
Go to post #7 and look at the first picture. They're bending the trim strip that surrounds the roof insert here, but you can get an idea of what kind of setup you need to bend a crazy shape without having it go nuts on you.
