Question Modding for Metal Cloak Flare Fenders and Flares

So I've been really preparing for getting my metal cloak fenders and flares in another month but I have a few problems...

Problem #1

My poison spyder rock sliders stick out past where I believe the fenders end.
How do I go about cutting the thick metal? and can someone help me with a layout to cut them just so they fit?

Problem #2

I have a body lift.. approximately a 2" body lift. This is going to create a gap between the bottom of the inner fender wall and the frame.
How do I fill this gap? Is there weather striping big enough or something?

Problem #3

What colors to paint them?

Help Me Brainstorm Guys!
All Reply's will Help!
*Pictures would be awesome too*

Here is some pictures of me Jeep to show the rock sliders and possible paint combinations
Thanks!

I'll contribute my opinion.


Ditch the body lift, or at least what is beyond necessary for tuck clearance.

Mock up the fender and mark where it intersects the sliders, use cutoff wheels, unless you have access to a plasma cutter, and clean it up with a deburr bit or grinding stone.

Color? I can't help with that so much as its really a matter of personal preference. I would paint them with something durable(ish), that is easily maintained and comparatively inexpensive.

I have no experience with their fenders, so I'd be flying by the seat of my pants on any fab stuff and would just figure it out as I went.

I would figure it out as I go but that often means mistakes for me and I only give my Jeep the best treatment haha. I feel like taking the body lift off would be to much extra work for just putting in fenders and I wanna keep it. I was thinking Id see if my local weld shop could help me cut them right. And paint I have no clue as well haha I was thinking maybe all just black then the little triangle piece that attaches to the side of metalcloak fenders either my green or gray.

For the rockers, we have a thread on our How To page that details how to do that including a PDF template you can use to mock it up.
