Re: Awning Track For Dodger/Sprayhood?

Just for reference here are some cold-formed polycarbonate shapes along with a photo of some polycarbonate being formed on a brake. Of course if you DIY and stick it in a vise and bend it, that is not a "controlled industrial application" so don't be surprised if it explodes and you die!
