Sheet metal loop

I am trying to create a loop of 20GA sheet metal. The outside radius is to be 2in and its 1.313in tall. 


I modeled it then tried to place a few variations of flats in-between where it meets to insert bends with and get nothing good. It chops the top 3/4th of the model off and still has a ring with out a flat pattern.


Saw a video on using base flange/tab to create it and that wasn't working either. When i try to click flatten it chops all but a few degrees of the entire ring out and leaves me with a sliver of metal no where near the size of a flattened part.


What would be a suggested route to go to create the above mentioned loop?
