The boxed area prevents things from falling down through the trims of the bike.

You can cut off the tail and use aluminium strips from any hardware section(found in the sheetmetal isle on the ends of the rows) to easily bend and make something for the turnsignals/plate. I always use hyperwhite leds from an autostore for licenseplate lighting, two for redundancy, simple drill the angle needed and the led plugs through. For turn signals there are some nice a/m options; Motorcycles Unlimited keeps some in stock usually. Or you can remount the originals.

Dremel is your friend....

A/M turn sigs screwed into the trim; here it has the original bulb put through the trim and painted on one side; went to an LED afterwards.

If you wanted to trim the box out, I do have some industrial strength foam from body panel shipping that is very stout but gives; so you could insulate and prevent items from dropping through if you want it Mike.

I keep it at work. Plus the tools are there too if you wanna use them.

Thanks for the advice. After looking at it and thinking some more I will keep the base of the fender - just too hard to match the curves and not really gain anything.

I am still considering removing the outer box so I may take you up on the foam.

I would really like to remove this box - the bike tools sit on top of it and a rubber band holds them down. But its just hollow.
