    I would just like to thank everyone who has contributed to this thread. The talent here is awesome and it encouraged me to try something myself.
    Here is the first panel I have bead rolled.

    HPIM0864.JPG

    Scale-the panel is rough cut at just over 36" long by 8" fore to aft. Each square is 1 3/16".

    This panel was done on my manual, stiffened frame, HF bead roller.

    Looks great! I bet it tried to become a pretzel/potato chip while you were running it thru :D.

    Thanks guys.

    I used one of the shearing dies from the HF set and bought a piece of rubber hose that fit over the body of the die, than a tipping wheel on top.

    DaTinman-

    Yes it twisted pretty bad, but some tuck shrinking on the surrounding flange straightened that out.

    What size is that Chev, and what sort of $$ did you charge for it (if it isn't a rude question?)
    Thanks
