I now you would like to save the fenders(tubs),, But I think it would be nicer to re-make some new tub's to fit the car,, A lot easier then fitting the car to the tubs in this case,,, Just my way of doing it..
Appreciate the thoughts, but I just hate the squared look of "race" tubs. The reason I started with trailer fenders is the rounded, factory looking edge.

I personally agree and when it's finished it will look like it was "born" there. There are a lot of different ways to skin a cat.
