Either do the steel body work or take a fiberglass mold off a mockup and make a fiberglass version. Either works great by itself, the problem comes in mixing the two. I don't have a mind's eye view of what you want to do. Can you cut some radial slits in the fender opening, form the resulting tabs to the bulge then weld in pie shaped wedges of sheet metal to fill the resulting gaps? That should be fairly easy to do and with a little Bondo, you will have a stable fender.
