Look at Contour Roll in Sheet-Metal. You will probably want to start from scratch.

Here it is. IV 2010 file. But I would check manually that the flat pattern dimensions are correct.

Igor.

Not a problem, just create a new extension on one end and create longer legs for the extrusion, then cut/fillet the sharp corner to get your radius.
