I am going to need to bend and form them to match the curvature at the rear corners of the cab. What's the best way to form them and to get them to stay formed?

trying to bend plywood is not easy, the best way is to make a form and use thin veneers which can be bought on Amazon or some lumber yards, spread a thin layer of glue on each veneer until the desired thickness press it into the form clamp over night then trim to fit. I just went out a bought a piece of sintra sign board to do the same thing in my coupe door panels. good luck, SC
