    Yeah yeah, it's not dirty yet, still trying to fix some problems. ANyways, here's some pics that I took last weekend during the day. Driveway wheelin at it's best. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif


    Massively cut fenders sure do make 42s look small! I doubt they would have even fit on the truck if all the sheetmetal was still there. The hood doesn't normally sit like that, the battery was being charged to an extension cord was going under it.

    Look at that lovely paint job! /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif I don't know why the tires always look so much bigger in pics from behind...

    Hydro assist, you can see the ARB line in there too.

    I had a slight brake fluid leak that ate the paint off the diff cover, I'll fix that one of these days...

    Dang tires don't look that big, but they sure feel massive when you're spinning them down the freeway at 65!

    Those are some of the best looking cut fenders that I have seen. Really looks right.

    Thanks! It seems that most people try to keep the original square look. I went for more of a radiused look and really feel that it looks better. The idea was to go as large as possible in the front and retain the inner fenders. The rear was basically just cut large enough and in the right shape to match the front; it didn't require such large cutouts, it just looks better.

    I have to give props to Willyswanter for working the voodoo that he do so well with his plasma cutter. I made templates out of cardboard and he plasma'd all 4 fenders in about 2 hours. We only caught the truck on fire a couple of times. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif I spent another couple hours of grinding and final shaping after the plasma cutting was finished.

    Try it with no fenders. I recently had someone ask me if I was running 37s... /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    That is really sweet. I really like the look of those tires/wheels on your rig. The cut fenders just finishes the job nicely. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    How am I getting it to Pismo? I'm driving it of course! It's gonna be an interesting shakedown run, that's for sure... Emphasis on the "shake" /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    I live in Los Banos now.

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments.
