Custom Sheetmetal

Does anyone have ideas on how to get a custom tank and sheetmetal parts that are exactly what you want without having to ship the bike?

I need a custom tank and side panels made for my project that are very specific in their look. No cookie-cutter parts will work except for the fenders which will be WCC Outlaw front and rear.

I was thinking about taking some blocks of that real dense green floral foam that they use for silk flower arrangements and gluing them together then shaving the now large block down until I get the exact look I want. That way I can have the tank sit on the backbone perfectly, get the taper I want and the exact overall shape and dimensions I want. All that would be left is to carefully package the pieces and send them to the right people.

Any other suggestions or ideas would be appreciated. I don't have the time or patience to learn how to work metal so that's not a option.
