Anyone interested in a good challenge?

I've been working on this part for a few days now, and I can't figure it out. I'm starting with a flat sheet metal part, adding sketched bends, using forming tools, different combinations of bends and form tools, and I can't make it work. I get so close and then SW decides it doesn't like my design. I know I'm not asking the impossible, because the real part is sitting on my desk. The manufacturer builds it with real life forming tools.

So if anyone wants a challenge, here is the part for you to enjoy. I modeled it pretty close using just the basic commands.

for some reason, I can't attach the actual model, but here is a jpg.
