trimmed fender flares?

Anybody have pics from where they trimmed there stock flares for more tire clearance? Bushwackwer has some new ones out like that but It'd be way cheaper to tim stock ones for the look. even if I messed up I could buy new stock flares and be way under the cost of the wackers.

It's the pic, there are no jagged edges. I like how they came out and it got rid of the rub marks.

I would search the forum I came across a write up for this a while back that someone did it had great pictures and details on everything they did. They really turned out great and looked pretty good. If I remember right from reading that post I think all they did was remove the flares and marked them with a grease pencil and cut them with a good razor blade let me see if I can find the post.
