Curved Sheet Metal Part

I have been attempting to make a curved sheet metal circular part...not working. Any suggestions would be helpful. The closest I can get is to make an accurate half, then mirror the part, create assembly but when flattened falls apart.

Sheet Metal Part: Diameter 22" x 0.1345 (10GA.) thick.
Part will be rolled/curved on a 48.1875" cylinder.

So basically it will look like a Pringles potato chip.

Edit: Got it to work in an assembly but there has to be a cleaner way? I will have to get it to work on a conical face too.
