Ok, so its not actually a bend, I don't want to do it in sheet metal, but if I have to then I have to, but I have absolutely no experience and would like to use surfaces. Ok so I am trying to make this part (sorry its so blurry)

and I just cant get the little "wing" type things on the side to have the curvature to them. I've tried but I don't know what to do. If someone could point me in the right direction?? I have everything as an extruded solid right now, but would rather use surfaces, because I believe its easier, but solidworks doesn't like the surface idea. I just need an idea of how to do it, point me in the right direction, that would be great. Everything is just kind of as a guess to measurements, but I like what they're at. And I would like the wings to go along the curve that I put on the front plane. Everything else is on the top plane.


Thanks in advance,
