Default Fender cutting

Hey guys, I will be doing some fender cutting pretty quick here. My rear fenders are both pretty rusted out and need to get trimmed. Does anyone have any experience with this? It will be on my 1990 ford ranger xlt. Thanks

If there rusted out I would either replace the entire bed or put new bed sides on. If the fenders are that rusted out I'm sure the rest of the bed has rust also. I would find one in a salvage yard and spray the underside of the bed with undercoating before you put it on to prevent rust.

Thanks guys. When I bought the truck a couple months ago I checked for box rust and made sure the frame was in good shape. Here's a pic of what I'm talking about. I'll be putting a 4" lift on her in 2 weeks and will also be upgrading to 31" tires. I figured it would be a good time to cut the cancer off the fenders.
