I made a little dolly out of some scrap 1/8 inch plate and a piece of 1/2 inch round bar and used the dolly to roll the edge of another piece of 18 gauge I'd formed for the first fender attempt. I wheeled and hammered the piece until it matched the wire buck and the lines of the S10 bed side.

I've spent another couple of days assembling the pieces I've shaped for the passenger side fender. I am pleased with the progress although the results are by no means professional grade.

I've taken a few days off from work and finished forming all thirteen pieces for the passenger side fender. Today, I started welding them together, starting with the largest pieces on the outside behind the front tire.

I have six pieces of the fender, along the hood side, complete. My favorite is the trailing edge of the fender. I re-purposed one of the pieces I'd hammered on the stump before attending the Ron Covell workshop on bucks and fenders and was able to make the fender end in one piece rather than two.

With a three day weekend due to the Memorial Day holiday, I had a couple of days to devote to quality time with the shot bag, the English wheel and the shrinker/stretcher.

Here's a before and after sequence of one piece, still unfinished, that required a bit of persuasion with the shot bag.
