The next step is to bend the 150mm radius at the edge, which is much harder. This is done by clamping the strip to the side of the roof to mark it, then heating that area and bending that small section only. The process is then repeated many times until the curve matches the roof. The edging is then drilled with 3/16 inch fixing holes and temporarily fixed to the roof using 2BA nuts and bolts.
