I built this part and it can be flattened without interference but I'm not sure if the part can be bent or manufactured from a single sheet. I would really appreciate if someone can look at it and let me know if I have to built this in two pieces.
You would be able to form it, but it's not a very practical design for doing it. There would be a lot of setup and trial run costs associated with what you have detailed.
I'd suggest breaking it up into 3 sections and spot weld the top lips to the main body.
