Painter just called, My rear fender is done! I reshaped and repositioned my rear fender a bit! I also purchased a Mothers solo luggage rack. The fender re shaping will allow the mothers rack, which already follows the contour of the fender, to sit a mere 3/8 off it. The folks at Mothers powder coated it black for me. I also replaced my chrome fender struts with Vivid black ones. The rear fender will be completely clean no tailight or anything, with the exception of the luggage rack. It will allow me to carry a coat and rain gear or a pack bag for long trips without saddle bags and without damaging my rear fender!
