Seam in a cylinder

I have made a sheet metal cylinder with a rip. I am trying to create a seam on this rip as is done in about half way through.


I have tried to go through the same steps, but I can not select the inside of the rip to built hems and flanges on.  I also tried to make the cylinder by sketching 350 degrees of the cylinder instead of creating a rip, This had the same problem.


Does anybody know why I can't select these edges or how I can work around it?
