I finally got it done.  I took 2 rubber pads off of 2 screw clamps and put them onto a pair of vice grips.  I went around the pot slowly and didn't try to get it all done in one pass.  After going around once, I tightened the vice grips a little more, and repeated that a few times.  Probably 5 times all the way around in total.  It looks great, and no kinks.  Could probably return it to Wally World with no problems!   ;D   This weekend I'll get the SS hardware for the grate supports.

Winz,

What pot did you use for your SJP 18". I got one SJP on Craigslist for free and there's one for sale for $30.00 right now and I'm thinking of making the 18" WSM mini. Did the lips fit or did you have to tweek some?  Do you have a post on your 18" build?
