Finished welding the lower fender piece and set it up against the hood side. I still need to work on the wheel opening and the hump behind the wheel opening, but it's coming along.

I lucked out with the hammering and trimming - the lower fender piece came out great. Tacked in place, it fit perfectly. I also used the flanging tool to create the edge for the tire opening.

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.
