This style of aluminum track bends to reasonably tight 90 degree radiusThe aluminum track has a flange making it basically impossible to bend to fit the compound curve of the the front of the dodger. Could have used it on the sides. Decided to have everything the same. My plastic track has been in use for almost 15 years and shows no sign of failure. Being out of the sun I am sure helps with that. It is inexpensive. When it fails I'll just replace it.
