    Do you have to put a curve in the drip rail to fit it to the vehicle? How would you do that?
    Shrinker maybe.

    If you let loose of it while pulling through the dies it flops around and does a nice vertical radius. Yes, experience. For where this is going I believe there is a miter cut at the top of the a pillar and then it has a straight run to the back. For horizontal curves I would imagine you might have to cut the blank with that radius already cut into it, and tip the flange. You can put a slight amount of radius in while pulling through the dies while forcing the direction desired. Not sure where the breaking point / kink point starts.


    Thanks for the comments guys!
