Longeron Bending

Here are the materials needed: Digital level, Vise, Adjustable Wrench, Heavy and Soft hammer, Duct Tape, Straight Edge, Measuring tape, gloves, sharpie. Plan on several hours of bending and tweaking...
Here are the upper longerons (L&R) all bent and clamped together to ensure a mirror image b/w the two. You can't see it here but there are four distinct bends on each Upper Longeron. I pinched a chalk line on the floor to help check the displacement on the Aft end.(shown)
