    That looks good for a cherry popper cut. Might want to fold it under though.

    Front looks like it's up to the bottom of the inner fenderwell??? Back looks like just a littl nip off the corner??? I'd go for a little more on the back side. If you cut it to just in front of the inner you can easily hammer the skin over so you don't cut your tires. Just my $.02, but you asked for it.

    yeah i trimmed it off because there was a HUGE dent where I ran over a gas station steel pole (the types around the pumps, except in front of the store) /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif and i already had my bumper off, and i cut most of that. i WANTED to take the front off even with the end of the white paint, but there is what appears to be something connected with the radiator support ad if i cut there then that will still hang down expt on the outside. . .
    help. . .
    thanks,
    Henry
