I put black plastic edge trim around it to clean it up and bolted some led running board lights to the flare. They look like the bushwacker ones

did you cut the liner of the fender out? In the youtube video the guy does it but it doesn't seem necessary...

I separated the liner and cut it to fit back in the well and screwed it in with some self tappers. I ran It with out the liners for a while. Didn't like the look

Painted fenders cut just as easily and safely as the non painted ones. I cut mine with zero issues whatsoever. There are tons of pics around the net of others who have done the same.

I'd say get some painters tape. Mark out the lines make sure it's even and go slow

My son and I cut some stock/textured flares we got off Craigslist, as I didn't want to cut my factory painted flares. So we took to cutting, and instead of leaving flat, we rolled the edge to give structural support. Then we painted/sanded/and clear-coated.

Turned out well. Can only post one pic at a time.

Those look great! How'd you roll the edge? And what do you find is the best tool to cut the fenders with?

I left the underliner hard plastic underneath the flare when i cut the flare itself. looks like you just dumped those. do your flares flap in the wind?

also did you use a dremel to cut that angle or did you use a jigsaw?

Thanks! We used a propane torch and heated the area we wanted to fold. Gotta wear gloves, as the plastic gets hot.
