Another simple but effective method of folding the side panels is to clamp them onto the frame and use a length of timber and a hammer to complete the fold.  The advantage with this method is that you have an exact fit to the frame.  When you weld the frame the heat can cause some distortion of the tubing and this method of folding the aluminium overcomes the problem and ensures an accurate fit.
