Test fit on the bus. Still some tweaking to do but the basic shape is nearly there

The bezel clips in place nicely

I also trimmed off the excess metal

With the shape pretty near to where it needs to be I decided to rollin the lip for the bezel on my bead roller

here's a shot with the light wedged on the front, still heaps to do

Some more reworking, bringing the sides down to close the gaps up

test fit, lots of work yet to do

I rolled the metal on the rollers to make a cylindrical shape

traced the pattern onto some metal and cut it out

I started off by making a paper template
