Fantastic project, the gloss red paint really makes it pop and goes beautifully with your 2CV. Thanks for sharing!

I don't know how to finish folding walls with a roof, maybe someone has an idea. In Poland, there are no angles to bend

I think it is called insert roof edge molding . It is usually made of softer aluminium that can bend along the roof curve. Try searching it in your area or from online suppliers.
Good luck!

Thank you for your answer. I found something like this in a trailer store, will it bend in an arc?

Unfortunately I do not have a "fit-all" answer to your question. You will have to ask the store staff, generally it depends how soft the material is and how high is the edge that is resisting in the direction of the arch bend. Many aluminium alloys can also be annealed or softened by heating them, but you have to know what you are doing from the alloy composition properties perspective.
