Ideally you would bend back the metal to cut the existing metal bead so the new metal bead can go beyond the repair panel. Now you have a hinge point that will be a little weaker.

Subject: [Healeys] Fender Bead Question
I've got my patch panels for the lower part of the four wings. They all have a few inches of the wheel well beading extending beyond the top of the patch. All the usual vendors' pictures show this. Is this extra that I just cut off? I would be good, I suppose, to have it replace the equivalent bit of beading in the original, but I don't see how I could get the old bead out without mucking up the wing.
I went ahead on one dog leg and cut that piece off and the new piece welded on fine. Should I have done something else?
