Bead rolling

Have you considered buying a bead roller from Princess Auto for a couple of hundred bucks and doing it yourself? More than likely less than the cost of labour of having someone else do it. You also have the option of selling the tool when you're finished.

Bead roller needs to be powered to be a one person operation. I have one of the cheap ones and did a lot of work to it to make it stronger and added an electric motor.

I did all the interior panels for my 79 Mustang out of aluminum. Its a lot of work. Start with cardboard templates then make the panels using the pattern. Layout the lines for the bead on the panel then work slowly following the layout.
