I already had the tool it worked awesome. But the are other ways, some people use a cut off wheel, box cutter, what ever you feel comfortable with.

Masking tape gives you a perfect line to follow and cut.

Is there an adhesive on the molding or do you have to apply one?

There is an adhesive in the molding, put it on and press firm sticks on.

I cut mine today. I used a $10 grout and tile blade on my angle grinder. It cut through the fender like butter. Then I just sanded the edges smooth. I'm gonna spray bed liner on them tomorrow to finish them off. Whatcha think? ...here's a before with 6" flares, and after.

Hey ipath, did you do any prep on your flares before using the bedliner on them? and what kind of bedliner did you use?

I used something that said prep spray it was supposed to remove any wax or grease but it didn't seem like it did anything. I would just sand them lightly with a 200 grit sand paper then shoot them with some rustoleum bed liner. Coat them at least twice. Other than that you should be good!
