Bending 1/8" Al Diamond Plate

I would like to find out if there is a good way to make a nice straight 90 degree bend in 1/8" aluminum diamond plate using regular shop tools like clamps, vise, torches, etc.. I don't really have the need to purchase a bender but would like to do this for a one time small project. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If it is a "one time thing" and you want it to look nice, go to a sheet metal shop and have it done. I have not seen anyone using the tools you describe, get a nice looking bend. Good luck.
