Default Modified Bead Roller

I picked up this bead roller off Craigslist to make a few panels I needed for my car. It had a crank handle on it and I was having a hard time lining up my work and cranking at the same time. So I found a used boat steering wheel and retrofitted it on the bead roller. I have to say, its way easier now to roll panels.

These are the panels I made, I've never bead rolled before so I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out. I actually really enjoy the metal work part of my build.
