I was thinking (I tried it and it worked) of using the 'create poly tool' then lay the new face on the can...combine.delete some faces and then bridge tool. I just dont know how to get the shape to stick to a surface first (only by hand)..or you could make the shape a cloth?? then drop onto it? object placement even...just theories

cheers bullet
