fender trim pics- what do ya think?

Discussion in '1973-1991 K5 Blazer | Truck | Suburban' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Mar 25, 2001.

    just hacked into the front fenders for the second time. didn't quite have enough clearance the first time around plus i didn't like my initial lines. you can't see it but i also cut the bottom back of the inner skirts too. looks like i could stuff some 38s in there now!

  3. 1/2 hour and 4 sawsall blades. the pictures really do it more justice than it deserves. i discovered the bottom front part of the right front fender has quite a bit of bondo in it. can't wait till it falls out. ugly is good

    Nice! I like how you re-shaped the whole opening rather than just the corners, it looks almost factory that way.

    Looks good, but why doesnt anyone show pics of the inside of the wheel well at the back???? Thats the part where I need to know what you do. Do you cut it too? Or bend it back? Or weld it to the outer again? Etc.

    Thanks-

  9. i was afraid you guys would ask that. this is where my job is a little hacked. I cut both inner and outer pieces of sheetmetel and only had to do some minor hammering near the top. if i had a welder and new how to use it i could do a cleaner job and close things up. luckily for me i'm not too picky on the looks of my rig and i still have the option of-yes- more cutting should i go with larger tires. so check these pics

    Thumper I pushed my innerfender back then welded it to the outer.I like this better than cutting it off.This way it still keeps mud and rocks from hitting under your feet.Brady

    Oh yeah I also cut the front fenders like Bluebeast but I pinch welded them together.I don't care about how my ride looks but I wanted to keep some of the mud and water out to prevent more rust.Brady

    Here is a pic of my inner fender before I cut the outside fender, I cut right under where the two connect and then angled down to meet up with the inside connecting point, I used a sawz-all.

    Looks good. I can't wait till I have to do mine. Thanks for the pictures of the inner wheel wells because I was not sure how to cut them.

  19. sure, steve!!! had to upstage me. yours looks much cleaner- but i guess you have a web site to run and all. looks like you cut the inner sheetmetal back a bit more towards the floor pan. i like that. not bad... for a mall runner!!! LOL!
