                  I thought I had photos of the process but not... I did find a test piece from the process..
                  the part was made in 4 pieces... the top, front, upper side and lower side... the attached photo is the lower side...
                  the cover section was split in two... the reverse was stretched and formed. Mechanical shrink was added and done.... the upper side done in a similar fashion.
                  the top has a little shrink to bring up the shape and the body line was just formed over the bench. The front cut to shape and a little of shape added.... weld it up and on the the fender it goes
