Convert to sheet metal -- so close!

I have a tube that has been cut using features defined in an assembly.  I have made a thin shell, but I need to convert this part to sheet metal in order to flatten it and create a pattern to wrap the pipe with for cutting.


I have done this before by starting with a lofted bend, then making the cuts and unfolding the bend.  However, I have already defined the parts as solids.  I'm sure there is a simple way to convert this thin shell to sheet metal, but I'm evidently missing something.
