    This is very likely to crack the paint overlying the shaprest point of the roll....

    Unless you're happy with that,I wouldn't bother.

    Very true, use at your own risk really.

    I have seen it done a couple of times with out any issues but I think they heated it up a little bit before commencing.

    Its also better than using mole grips. lol

    If its on an 8P, forget it, its double skinned iirc, of course rolling would be stretching the metal & that could cause 1st tears in panels & 2nd paint cracked, wouldnt touch it with a barge pole let alone scaffold :)

    Always been interested in seeing some one roll arches doesnt sound too good with a pole:laugh
    Could it not go to a body shop and ask them to weld a part on if you want it wider?
