Abstract (en)

Production of a satisfactory outer profile for a hemmed joint is often difficult due the bending of a hem being conducted without anything to provide back resistance to the bending motion. A first inner panel 4 and a method for joining the first inner panel to a second outer panel 8 are disclosed. A hem 22 of the second panel 8 is wrapped around an edge 2 of the first panel provided along at least a part of its length with a die cast bead 14 to secure the edge of the first panel within a channel 34 formed thereby in the second panel. The die cast bead 14 provides a back resistance during this bending of the hem portion about the lip of the bead. <IMAGE>
