 Here is how i did 4 at a time, i laid out the pipe with the ends cut off.
Clamped them to a saw horse and a wood block .
Then take your heat gun and soften the plastic, until it bends up go back and forth until all 4 pipes are soft then, bend all of them up.
And then clamp a wood block behind them. And let them harden this doesnt take long.

Step 4: Step Three: the Second Bend

Now For The Second bend take the side of the L shaped pipe that does NOT have the pointed end. Then heat up PVC pipe abotu 3 inches from the 90% bend, then when it gets soft bend it up and over them clamp it down.
