I got a hold of the clothes steamer and tested it out with sections of the busted capstrip. After a couple tests, it seemed that this method will work much better. I just steamed the new capstrip for about 10 minutes where the bend takes place. After setting it in the jig and slowly bending it down a little I kept steaming it while slowly lowering it down all the way. No breaks, no problem. It's faster and seems to bend better without splitting.
