So I thought aw heck I'll bend my flat... I throw the jig under my VW bus and put a bottle jack under it. I got my bus 4 inches off the ground and the flat didn't budge. So much for THAT idea Going to my buddy's shop tomorrow to use his press to bend my flats.

LOL, the press will work better but the VW makes for a better story.

I bent my first flat with 2 c-clamps, but then I just bought a press after one of the clamps literally shattered sending shrapnel all over my basement. Now I recommend that if you are going to use c-clamps that you use 3 instead of 2.
