Need help making a scale model fender skirt from scanned STL files.

Hello Everyone. I have a good scan of a 1963 Impala fender. I want to make a fender skirt for it. I was hoping I could use boolean commands to create the skirt. I dont know the right approach. 


I was able to create this negative of using primitive. But I was hoping there was a way to print out the right shape without having to reshape anything. 


I pretty proficient in fusion as well. Id love any help. thank you.

It looks like you did it there. What's wrong with what you accomplished?

Thank you for replying. I'm close. I have the outline if the skirt. But I don't know how to extract just the skirt. Maybe this is the best I can do with mesh work? I have a feeling the rest will require sculpting. I don't know how to make the skirt match the curve of the side of the car

Just select and delete the portion you do not want, then close with Inspector.


Or attach your .mix

I was leary at first about buying ICON Jayco Tandem fender skirt but after reading all the reviews, decided to take the plunge. I want sure what to expect but was really happy with it. It was shipped well so it didn't get bent/ broken. It fit exactly where the original was and actually looks better.
