Windows on cylinder (sheet metal)

So I don't know what is happening here. I've tried so many things and watched so many videos but no matter what I do I cannot get reproducible results with this.

I am trying to add two adjacent windows to a sheet metal cylinder. I made the cylinder, unbent it, then extruded my windows. Well now it will not let me bend the cylinder back. I know I have been able to bend it back after making circular windows, is there something about square windows that will not let it work?

 

The second thing is that I want to add some edge flanges to the edges of the window. Will I be able to do that and then bend the cylinder again?

I know that there could be issues with keeping the integrity of the flanges after the re-bend but I feel there has to be a way of accomplishing this, any Ideas?

 

Thanks all.

 

I have attached a sample of what I am trying to do.
