I have tried and failed to model the joint edges of this metal assembly. I used a two point arc, then the follow me tool, but the results are not realistic (see image below). The opposite side is a plain edge. I also tried and failed to use Fredo Scale. The result I am trying to produce is below (see image). I have attached the SU file.

I need help in developing a workflow (bending metal to form joints) using native tools if possible. And, if not possible, then an extension.
I also have no idea how to create the stiffeners and the bottom oval cut out.
Thank you in advance for your ideas and help.
