I found a scrap ⅜” piece that I could use for a bending form. I shaped one corner then tried a sample bend. It came out pretty good. All of 5-10 seconds doing the bend. This first piece came out pretty good. But I wanted to soften the bend a little bit more. So I worked on it a bit more. Then I bent the 1 ” piece. That one came out very nice.

Now I have to smooth the form some more. Then I’ll drill the attach points to the brake. One more practice 2” piece and then I will bend my first landing gear.
