Fender trimming

Need to trim my fenders. The back look easy enough. The front I am not sure though. Trimming the fenders will be easy but what about the metal plate that runs on the sides and top of the tire? Do I just need to Cut that horizontaly as mutch as needed? The fender trimming will be useless unless something is done with that plate.

<font color=blue>When you do them you can pull them 2.5". The book say 2 but mesure it at 2.5". You will want that Half inch. On the door side of the finder the cutout flar should be right at the edg of the finder.

Re: Fender trimming

He..he.. here is my 30 Hp weight loss tip.. Cut the fender liner horizontal at he second bolt.. This will make it flush to the body tub.. The fender itself I recommend taking the hood off and pulling all the bolts holding the fender on except the front one.. You can get in there a ton easier with a saw-zall.. I cut about 6" from the bottom to level with the body tub.. The bushwhacker cut outs can be trimmed open in a crescent shape and will look nice.. JR has seen my weight loss program and he can attest to its looks and functionality..[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] Ohh I found a pic and it has been cleaned up from this and the air dam is gone now too but this can give an idea.. Best shot I got and had to zoom in..

Re: Fender trimming

You go BOY!!! I wish the ZR2 had a cutout type flare, but they don't. This is a piece of info that eveyone can share to if considering buying one. I basically have the same 33" wheel opening as the rest of ya'. That sucks too. If I had a cutout type flare I KNOW 35's wouldn't be a problem at all.
