    I searched for fender trimming and found some posts about it. But, all the links for the pictures no longer work. I sent an e-mail to pcorssmit, sorry if I spelled that wrong, but it came back as user unknown or something. I know I had it right, becuase I clicked on his link in his bio to e-mail him. Could I get some pictures, either posted, or better yet e-mailed to me?
    I am talking serious trimming, not just an inch or two off the front or back. Big time trimming. Thanks

    I plan on doing a tech article soon when I get time, for now here are few pics of mine, I cut 6" from the door all the way to the top of the fender where it starts to down turn and cut the inner fender just below where it bolts to the tub.

    Forget it... I must have been too quick. :-)

    but, I am talking fender trimming like you did, but all the way around! Not just the back.

    But, you did do a good job.

    You need to take a look at Stephen Watson's K5, he trimmed a lot including the radiator support. I think Dan has a pic somewhere.

    You can PM "gokartergo" he is the member here that took the pic or you can go to <A target="_blank" HREF=http://offroaddesign.com>http://offroaddesign.com</A> and talk to Stephen directly.
