i'm trying to fit these repop fenders, but I don't know what they are supposed to look like. This is the passenger fender below the body line and there is a crown in the middle. Up in the middle of the fender between the two body lines, it drops off where it meets the door. Should these areas be straight? I don't know because I don't have any original fenders. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes the bottoms would be straight on an original fender. Not bowed like you are showing with your straightedge. If the bow you are seeing is only below the bottom body line, I would consider not messing with it. Chances are pretty good that nobody would ever know the difference.

That's a pretty big "bulge". It's gonna look like crap when looking down the side of the car. But maybe no one but me would notice...
