18ga SS. Maybe with the little bit you need to expand it will be fine. The shop I use has been doing this work for as long as I can remember,,, he can bend anything. He's even bent a couple brass and copper boat exhausts for me over the years.

We did try heating one and it split just as easy. Not sure what you mean by not pretty,,, the hydraulic expanders are the same principle as the manual.
