To me it is not really clear what you need.
Hi, I need to add a rolled lip around the rear and side of the top surface. I have added some of the lip two flat sections on the sides, but I don't know how to join it up so it goes around all the curve as it drops down on the side and the rear section to link both sides you can see the lip in the picture
You can use a sweep for that
You can also use the sweep feature, for the sweep path use a 3D sketch..
Is that what you're talking about?
see attached video.

There are a lot of ways, but here is one. It uses a Curve made by offsetting the outer perimeter of your tower by half the wall thickness on a flat plane above the top. Then creating a projected curve by projecting sketch onto face(s). then use that curve as the path of a circular sweep boss. I did not include your flanged front of the tower for simplicity and I added radii at all the sharp intersections around the original perimeter. You could use this concept though and it will give the same results with the flanged front portion included.
