    For everyone that cut there fenders what did you do to keep the rear quarters from flapping in the wind? I did cut the rear quarters to above the bumper, but they still move in the wind. Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Mine is cut just like yours, but it looks like your bumper/hitch makes up for it. Did you weld your quarters to your hitch?

    Thanks.

    If you are talking about the rear wheel openings... here is what I did:

    The orentation of the picture is a little wierd... but basically I made relief cuts in the inner fender, and bent them up after cutting them at the correct length to support the outer skin... Hope that makes sense. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
