Do you know the trick to change fender radius without risk of creating wrinkles and kinks?

If not: Pull the fenders edges apart to reduce the radius. Finger strength is enough.

I'm going to buck the trend and say yellow and copper does not look good together. I do dig the blue and copper, though.
