Default Fender skirt advice/ help

I am having trouble making simple fender skirts for my !950 Chevy Deluxe and the skirts that are available for it do not fit well. I've thought about making a hammer form but that would still require shrinking and stretching to make them match the contours. I've tried making a 90 degree flange and running it through a shrinker/stretcher but not happy with the results so far. I don't have picture at the moment but I could get them if needed for advice. I'm either over thinking the process (which I tend to do) and that causes frustration, or I lack the basic skill needed to accomplish the task at hand. What's the best way to go about this?

Thank you all in advance.

The first step is to post several photos with explanation notes, other than that most of us would just be guessing about your problem and therefore solution ~ John Buchtenkirch
