I know it's hard to decide. Put a couple spacers under the fender so you get a better idea of what the finished thing will look like. I like both but its a style thing. Whatever you're looking for.

ImageThis is a blank fiting
I thought That the « short version » was too short, because of the tank lengh
Next step will be the painting
