    For those of you who care, here are some pics of my happy day with the saws-all and the air-saw.
    I left the inner fender in tact and cut the inner support back, then I plan on bent the inner back and will tack weld the inner fender to the floor pan support and the fender support. This is all for the looks. I havn't completed it yet. I still have to remove the bumper to get the last cut on the front then I gots to replenish the argon/co2 tank for the welding.
    But for you picture whores like Rene [​IMG], here are some for now.

    Thanks. The bumper is gonna be a bitch to get off though. Those bolts are rusted on there good. I soaked them with blaster Saturday, I'll do it again this afternoon. Hopefully it wont be too bad. Wish I had a new bumper to go ahead and put on there while I had this one off.[​IMG]

    What tool did you use to cut the inner fender support? Looks like you only cut the support back a couple of inches. Are you planning on beating the inner fneder back to that and tack it? Or are you going to remove it eventually and push all the way back to the pan?

    I cut it with a saws-all. And I cut it pretty much as far back as it will go. I could probably get another 1/2 to maybe an inch without removing it. I'll have to wait and see if I "really" need to remove it completely. But yes, I have already bent the inner back and Im gonna tack it to the pan support and to the remaining fender support.
