SBU Rear fenders

Searched the forum and did some googling but can't find and answer. I am looking at replacing the rear fenders of the U1200.

Called Polytech from PG and stopped by at CBS parts but it seems like the plastic fenders they sell are all 26" wide....

The originals are only 16" wide. Any idea's?

I looked at some rear truck fenders for the dual wheels. I played with the idea of cutting it down the middle. The ones I saw were finished on both outer edges, the cut down the middle would be against the frame and therefore hidden. I also considered the grader or tractor ones from different manufacturers.

Yeah, I used Polytech 26".
Cut them in the center, trimmed, I guess 8" inside and plastic welded back.

You can tweak the seam even better by using heat gun.
I just didn't go that far.

Of course, why not.
Only limit is your imagination.
BTW for my rear fenders I had to design new brackets that hold tail lights too.
