If You used another crankset with more Q-factor it might help with the pedal-fender problem.
So I don't have great graphics tools at my disposal, but if you could get a fork with a little more 'rake' to it, which would set the axle out front more; that would effectively drop the tail of the front 'fender' piece and also move it forward a bit to clear your pedal.
And, if you used a 700c or 29er length fork, it would bring your front end up a bit, for a 'tail draggin' caddy' effect....
Yellow lines show my idea...
I don't mind the fender, I keep the pedals up in a turn.

I'm guessing the headlight may be an 'inside' job?
No, it actually fits in from the outside.
The bezel is conical, then held in place with a screw.
