Suppose again that Z = X +Y. Find fz(Z)

Let X and Y be independent random variables defined on the space Ω, with density functions fx(x)nd fy(y), respectively. Suppose Z = X + Y.
Find the density fz(Z)
if fx(x)=fy(z)=
X/2, & \text{if 0<$x$<2,} \\
0, & \text{otherwise.}

attempt: I tried to take the integral $$\int_{-∞}^{+∞}((z-y)/2)*(y/2)\,dx,$$, then I got $$\int_{-∞}^{+∞}((zy)/4)-(y^2/4)\,dx,$$, unfortunately I was unable to figure this out

Your integral limits should not be infinite. What should your limits be? If $f_Y(y)$ is 0 outside $(0,2)$, what does this mean for your limits?
