Working on the van wiring I designed a small box for the rear to hold some relays, a fuse block, a barrier strip and a Maxi-Fuse. The box is fully enclosed and has 3/4" wide flanges on the inside for the lid to bolt to.
Doing all of the bends was no problem until we had to close up the last two sides.
The top flanges just wouldn't let the 8" finger pass to do the complete bend. We got about 15 degrees out of it.
We decided to make a couple of 2 1/2" wide stepped fingers so the flange will slide past the finger and let us complete the bend. Here they are mounted in the brake.
And a close up of the clearance we had to the inside flange during bending.
