This stuff doesn't bend, what is the secret? I have already ruined one 8' piece. Maybe the curve is too much, what do you guys and gals think?
WHICH aluminum trim are you talking about ... and WHERE are you trying to install it? Your picture shows the outside of the teardrop, so I'm assuming you're trying to trim out the roof-to-wall edge, correct? Only two types of molding should be used on that edge - Regular Edge Molding or RV Roof Edge Molding (yeah, yeah, yeah ... I know some of you guys have used aluminum angle .... ;-} ;-} ...). Regular Edge Molding is very pliable and should go 'round that radius with ease. RV Roof Edge Molding is thicker & stiffer, but should still go 'round that radius with little or no difficulty if you go slow and use steady, even pressure.
Or, am I not understanding your application? Without digging into my records, I can't remember what you bought from me ...!
