What pigslo suggests will certainly work if it is a gentle bend. Just be aware that you are putting a fair bit of strain on the fasteners in shear, their weakest load vector and that prebending, as i think you know, will avoid this. Since the fasteners are likely much stronger then they need to be it probably won't matter, but it is good to knowwhat the compromise is.
