springs fender trim party
 
Finally got some big boy tires and I'm flexing into the fenders. Chris, I know you've been debating it. let's get some Jeeps, sawzalls/dremels, beer, and maybe someone that knows what they are doing together and make it happen.

If I were you I would get a small jigsaw and use that. It's how I did it and it really makes it easier with the flat bottom and it cuts down on the vibration of the fender. Plus with the cut mark on the saw base, you can trace that tape like it's you job.

I considered the sawzall, but it bounces so much I that I elected to use the jigsaw. I would tape it 4-5 different ways and see which one you like best. Just my .02

Not a bad idea, It's an excuse to buy a new tool too.

haha yep. I think that one tool alone made mine turn out a lot better than I expected. I only cut mine down by 1/2" width wise to catch most of any spray and left the interior front curve by the grill alone. I've seen people round those out, but I didn't think it was worth the chance of screwing it up or banging up my paint more than necessary.

Yup, it was carnage.

lol just kidding, it actually went really well. I finished mine off with some fender trim and velcroed the underside of the fender to the fender support and they don't flap. But best of all I don't rub at flex anymore.
