    OK, my fenders are quickly becoming beat up, Carnage Gultch (BV) just made it a lot worse so I went a head and trimed them a little to help keep them off the rocks.

    Until I get around to doing something drastic this "should" work fine /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

    Here is what I started with, one semi loose flap in the wind fender:

    I had to use a hi-lift to bend it back where it used to be, don't laugh it worked:

    Pretty much back to normal but it would have been ripped completly off the next time out:

    I slapped some duct tape on to help guide my sawzall with surgeon like precision:

    After cutting both innner and outer sheet metal, the inside was a little bit of a pain but not to bad, kind of fun actualy:

    The finished product after a little black paint to the underside and a new bling CK5 sticker.

    A little momento:

    No, thanks, I have enough loose, flapping sheetmetal to deal with due in part to the same trail. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Way to go. I've only been a member here for a month or so Steve. I would like to extend my gratitude for developing a great site, and one that functions flawlessly. The high quality posts and strong character of most members is more than I hoped for when signing up.

    It is inspiring to see your rig get the /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gifwhile you take it in stride. You're the real deal.
