Would you (personally) line a set of wood fender with metal? Or would maybe some spray-on undercoating over fiberglass suffice and be preferable for the inside wheel wells...
My vote would be to simply seal the wood well with several coats of oil based paint or urethane, then give it surface protection with rubberized undercoating.
Wood wheel wells are not a new thing, and work best when left uncomplicated.

That's easy, I'll have that for you tommorrow - unless it's sunny and the bicycle beckons......
I'll keep working on this.
