Trim pocket fenders?

Some kid ran his face [yes his face] into my fender flares.
I was already planning to get some tube fenders made for my rig, i guess this will speed up the process. But. while i still have these pockets on i figure ill have a little fun with them.. trim them down a little and see if i can remove the "bulkiness" that i never liked about them.

my question is: has anyone ever modified their pocket fenders and if so please post some pictures





also. if someone happens to have a spare fender flare for sale haha..

Was there alcohol involved with the face plant? I had a drunk buddy stumble and slam his face into my bug visor on my truck. It completely shattered. Needless to say when he woke up the next day, I drive him to the nearest auto store and had him purchase me a new one

no alcohol.. kid was about 10. broad daylight. i had just stopped at a stop sign at the end of a side street. and then .. wack! guess he was racing his buddy down the sidewalk and wasnt paying attention. i kinda felt bad for the kid..

I would probably say the same thing but at least an offer would have been nice.
