Fender cutting-CJ-7

Saturday after next I'm taking the cutter to the fenders of my CJ-7, gonna do the flat fender thing to the front, but haven't decided if I want to square off the back ones or keep em round but bigger. Just looking for opinions on the back, and what others have done and are you happy with the result. Also, any suggestions or tricks to make this come out right. I'll be using a grinder with metal cutting blades. Note: I won't be using flares.

Re: Fender cutting-CJ-7

Brad-
How do you like the rear of this one?

BTW: When you get done, bring it over.
You can use my air grinder, plus I can bring home an 8" diameter expandable sandpaper drum to mount on a big drill to smooth out any radius cuts.

Re: Fender cutting-CJ-7

Brad, I used TJ flares on mine but it looked good without the flare's and the sqaured off look in the rear. I will take a few pics of the back and post em'

Re: Fender cutting-CJ-7

here is how the front of my newest CJ5 is cut:



Not exactly how I would do it - but there isn't much I can do about that now [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
I too am looking for a way to cut the rear and not have it look too hacked...

Re: Fender cutting-CJ-7

I know Scramblers are a little different, but I cut about 1.4" off the rear of mine, so it's now level with the inside. I cut it a little more on the bottom to flare out for the bigger tires. Personally I like cut front fenders but don't like the "flatty" look, I still like the CJ style, just shorter. There was a recent writeup in one of the mags about this, I'll find it tonight.

Re: Fender cutting-CJ-7

I too am interested in what makes someone choose a "square cut" vs. a "rouded cut" when they go flatfender... Is it just personal preference?

I prefer the rounded cut, but that may just be me [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Fender cutting-CJ-7

If I ever get to move up that direction, we can make you some of these.In the meen time though,it would be a whole lot easier to find somone with a plasma cutter.
