fender cutting

How do you cut fenders without them making your truck look like it came from the "mad max" set?

Seriously though, what I'm going to do with mine is a lot of careful measurements from the fender lip and then cut exactly that amount either with an air chisel with metal shear attachment, cutoff wheel or rob a bank and grab a plasma cutter...

Re: fender cutting

I did one of my fenders with aplasma cutter and it came out nice, but it made me really nervous witha ll of the sparks in the engine compartment. The others I did with a sawzall and they came out even better without the stress and you actually have more control. The key is the delicate use of the grinder afterward to smooth everything out. I have pics here somewhere I will try and post them for you.

UUhm I used a dremel. It's slow, precise and easy to use. Just my 2 cents
