No joke - this sort of content is exactly what I love about Jalopnik. Some off the wall little thing 99% of people would never think about twice, like ones about the tiny arrows on the gas gauge or some weird concept car from 1973.

You don’t need to cut up fenders. Take one he has made and splash it to make a mold. This shape is super easy to make a mold of and once done you can make new ones as one piece in fiberglass or wet lay up carbon if you want.
