To get the sheet metal all the way around the plywood, use a wood block and hammer to bend it up and over the wood. Crease it so that it wraps tightly against the wood. Remove the clamps, and reposition the plywood and metal as you wrap each side.

Hammer down any sharp edges. Wrap the doors in the same manner.
