    use tape to mask off your line where you want to cut and use a cutoff wheel, makes the triming look good and straight. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    also trim about 1 to 1/2 an inch below where you want the line to be so you can use a hammer/dolly to bend a new lip in your fender

    An air nippler also works well for making that final clean cut. Its also good for make turns. Espessically the tight ones.

    I used a plasama cutter to trim my fenders. The only thing is your going to have to spend a little time cleaning up the edges.
