    Normally use a swaging tool basically a press with a 2 rollers one with a bump in and the other with the opposite bump in so a u shape.

    Thanks for the comments, yeh what he said just a standard bead roller.
    Bit more done, just finished up all the ally bits, fitted some windows and a polycarb windscreen which everyone seems to want to rub there hand across and is now covered in little scratches before iv even driven it:no:
    if I had known it was that easy to mark I would have had some glass cut, proper shite.
    dropped it on its wheels for the first time so I could actually roll it about which was an awesome moment, Id been waiting for some hub adapters to turn up. its really light!
    so its basically just the wiring, brake lines and wheel alignment to sort out and it should be good to go.
    Cheers[​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG][​IMG][/URL][/IMG]

    She saw the light for the first time today, did a burnout and took if for a little blast up the road then lost the clutch and all the fluid came out the bottom of the box. Was fun while it lasted though, I think I have some clearance issues with the slave to the the friction plate as it was difficult to get in gear and a bastard to bleed, so i think the slave has over extended.
    will take the box out tomorrow and have a look then im off to the classic ford show on sunday.
    Cheers
