It's trimming the fender down a bit so they can use wider rims without rubbing. In most cases, people just roll the fenders, but some people choose to cut them.

That would be correct, Johnny. The 504's (with the OTG spacer still in place) was just clipping the rim protector on the tires. Don't have access to a roller, and not patient enough for the baseball bat. And as far as a hammer is concerned... not on my fenders!!

It actually worked out well (thanks to working in the aviation repair field at one time), just a little touch-up paint and voila!

Looks like you got a little squirrely with the cut-off wheel, you think you could of used a little tape for protection? Your getting brave in your old age! LOL ;)

You would be the one to notice, perfectionist! :p

Yeah, a couple of nicks. But all on the underside.

Well I know yours will come out ultra clean! Wish I had thought about the tape.

Well, the tape would of helped incase of accidental slippage of grinder to outer quarter panel.

I love that show, seems like everytime I run across it there's boobies. Well, blurred boobies. :)

damn....should of taken the cut wheel out on mine instead of paying someone to roll and crack the hell out of the paint. Good job!!! Not much chipping...at least nothing a quick touch up won't fix.
