You have plenty of hammers, or I can lend you my 2 pound slapper!

hmm... we might be able to make a deal on the head... pretty sure you draw short... lol... I`ll ask my shrink what can be done

2 pound... I have one and I use it a lot! Not sure it would be my tool to make that bead. That is one restriction I really dont like on most (mine included) bead rollers. No way to use it on a curved panel like these fenders.
I may need to hack mine in the future

me too!! I suck at long projects like this.... There`s a truck staring at me every time I enter the shop. I try to look the other way , but that`s where the trike resides....

thanks for your support guys.

thanks. Not so sure about that Bob...

So, finally the owner gave in and told me "do yer thing on the front fender"
( but he still didnt see anything wrong there... )

To me it stood out like a sore thumb, so I attacked it before he could change his mind.

I stretched the edges and beat it back into submission. Since the owner had already been cutting and grinding at the front of the fender, I had to tilt it a lot forward. I cut off the mounting lip and moved it toward the rear more than 2" and dropped it 1.2".

whole lotta difference imo...
