Looks good,

To remove a deviation from the correct curve you only need to have the wheel positioned so that the errant material will contact the wheel. If the skin has the correct curve the wheel will barely touch the material if at all.

I found that I prefer to move the material that was pushed in first then switch or flip the part over to work on the outside. Using a marker to show where a ridge was also help to keep the wheel straight.

A lot of this work needs a helper that can hold the other end of the skin and allow the skin to flow over the anvil. If you do not work in concert the material will become jammed and that is not good.
