We decided that the first rear fender we had made out of 2 Harley front fenders was too thin and started making a new one from scratch. We made a steel strip in the in the length radius we wanted; first the strip will be used as a template and later it will be welded inside the fender After this part was done we cut a rectangle from 1.2 mm thick steel, then with a shrinker we started cuving in the sides. I have no pics of this part as I was operating the shrinker. Then Aad started stretching the middle of the steel sheet using the english wheel.

We had also made a wooden template of the side profile and using both templates, a big wooden hammer, the shrinker and especially the planishing hammer Aad managed to get pretty close to the desired shape in a few hours time. Much stronger than our first attempt already!
