    where to start cuts for trimming using steves fox\'s template

    ok i've seen many rigs trimmed but i think steve fox's is the closest to what i want
    [​IMG]

    Anyway i measured from where the string is inserted in this pic to the door jam, and it looked like 5 inches because that little white lip on the bottom that the string is stuck into is about 3/4 inches thick, so i layed that sideways and measured from the door jam to the string in photo shop and got 6 1/2 times or 5 inches.


    Steve if you are reading this and have measurements that would be great! or if anyone else knows please speak up /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    alot of people like mine, I didn't have to trim the rear at all though "2.5 back spacing" and it left the top lip on the fender /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    p.s. have some one hold the fender or aplly pressure to keep the sawzaw from jumping around on ya and distorting the sheet metal /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Here are some pics................
    from CK5

    There are a few that show the fenders. They have a straight cut, I think one pic looks like the cut is curved, but it is the angle that the pic was taken. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    If I remember right, it was around 5 or 6 inches from the door end, it is about 1 inch right now so I can't measure of course.
