Need advise/ideas on fender modification

Personally can't stand the look of mainly the stock flares and even the external part of the fender. I have a stubby bumper so it kinda looks like bulky wings. I like the look of the flat fenders but don't have the money at the moment since I'm not working cause I'm in season with lacrosse. My question is does someone make a low price product to put in place of the flare that just kinda caps off the fender OR is there someway to chop the fender at the hood line and have it look good. I understand most people will tell me to wait and just get the new flat fenders but I won't be in a position for that for a few months or more. I'm handy enough to do a diy project so I'm open to any ideas. Also I have heard of people being pulled over for having wheels out past the fender, currently my tire peeks out about an inch past the fender and have had no issues, any one know the legality of no fenders or lack of a portion of a fender?

I took off my flares and cut my actual fenders a bit. You can either cut them to look like flat fenders or just trim up the ugly edging like I did.
