    mine is all open right now thanks to some nice rust, i will trim in a simaler way, but am planing to make a bumper for the rear that extends to cover that area sorta like a slider.

    there is a seconed piece of sheat metal, behind that area, if you want a finished look try cutting 3/4" less off and then bent the exsess over to give a nice clean line, duck bill pliers should work good.
