Default Fill panel under '50s pickup bed rail

A customer wants this:

The picture is too big for the forum so please don't edit my post to make it appear. Just tap or click the link, or read the description below. Thanks.

The rolled top of the bed rail is to be connected seamlessly underneath, to the bed side wall at the point where it bends out to become the top rail. Along the entire length of the panels. A MIG welder is the available tool.

Is this possible, assuming the result must be straight? I foresee shrinkage being an issue.

In addition, 29x11x4" tubs will be added to the bedside panels. Boxing the existing rolled bed rail sounds simple, and I have always been able to do what is asked of me but this request concerns me. What are your thoughts or similar experiences?
