69 rear quarter louver grilles

What is the best and safest way to fit the new rear quarter louver grilles ? I am restoring my 69 Z28 and the new grilles, are naturally, not following the fender contour quite right. They need to be curved more than they are, and I am not sure the safest way to bend them, without damaging them. Thanks for any tips you can provide.

Definitely bend before installing. I gave up on the fit and spent the money for NOS ones. Pot metal does not bend well.
