    Click on the link to my site & go to yard pics then scroll down. It is not pretty. BTW do not use a torch to do this if you have Bondo in there. It will catch on fire. Ask me how I know.

    The trim article was fine but I now moved up to fender cut, here are a few pics, I will have more when I do a tech article on it. I cut the inner fender up to the bolt that holds it to the body then had a shop cut the outer metal with an air saw, he used a large piece of wire to mark the fender, the bottom is 6" from the door.

    Steve that looks great. nice clean and professional looking. Did you do the rear as well. Or was this not neaded as the original cut seemed sufficient clearance? Hope for detailed info on the write up as I plan on doing this when I buy my 38's

    Steve, that looks awesome! I just have one question for ya regarding the inner fender - After you cut it up to the bolt, how does it seal the interior from water, snow, mud, etc? Man, you did a great job on the fenders, they look factory! I took the Sawzall to mine a long time ago, but not as far as you went...I plan on getting the old saw out this weekend again!!

    I copied Steve on mine I also measured 6" from the door. But I kept the inner fender, I unbolted the bottom bolt of the inner fender then I cut the outer fender and pushed the inner back to the outer and welded it together.This helps keep mud and rocks from hitting the body.I need to add one more piece of metal to close the fender up.Brady
