Making the bend in the firewall

This has to be an eight degree bend. This firewall material is really weird. You breath on it and you get a dent. So I decided to cut a piece of aluminum angle from Home Depot to fit across the face of the firewall, exactly where the bend goes. After clamping it in place, I carefully pulled the firewall top towards to me and made the bend. It turned out pretty good.
