Default making waste gates in a car fender...

Hello to all,

I am working on a 1965 Impala and I am closely watching the progress of Chip Foose' Imposter project. While I understand how he sectioned the quarter panels and moved the roof, and also lowered it by about 1 1/4 inches, what I don't get is how he made the waste gates in each front fender behind the wheel well. There are several different angles involved and a curving section as well. Can anyone give me guidance on reproducing these great looking gills? I could reproduce them via a clay mold and fiberglass overlay but I would rather do it in metal. The waste gates I am speaking of can be seen at Chip's Facebook site or just Google "The Imposter '65 Impala" and look at the front fenders in-between the door and the wheel well. By the way, I asked Chip and have had no answer. Must be a trade secret....
