Default Re: trimming fenders help

I guess if you would want to cut your fenders you could buy some at sorta fit so if you fuck up it wont be much of a loss. I'd use a cutting wheel and finish up with a dremel tool. May have to repaint them as the bare metal will rust. As for fiberglass, as soon as you hack into it its gonna be all over the place. May end up making it splinter but you can fix all that with some fiberglass cloth and some activator. After that you could gel coat it or use dolphine glaze and feather it out. Then repaint those sections.
