That one thread did give me a couple different ideas so if you want to post up a picture of your job please do because I'm still open to ideas!

Just an FYI for when you decide to cut them, wish I would've found this out prior to doing mine, alot of people use a sawzall or pneumatic saw, i used a HF one, thing actually moved so fast it melted it back together after it made its cut.

struggled with the fronts, holding everything from flapping, getting a clean cut, etc. did the front with saw. rear was parked out in the sun (AZ August sun) and i was actually able to take a utility knife with a new blade and slice thru the rear flare like butter. shit blew me away. went and did the other side, again, right thru it. so i decided to let the fronts warm up in the sun and cleaned them up. You will still have to use the saw on the supporting plastic underneath on the fronts tho.

long story short, if you dont have the saw and all that crap, try a new utility knife. being winter you may need to heat up the flares with a hair dryer or heat gun, the AZ sun is pretty brutal and they were good and soft.

I decided to keep the corners of mine radius-ed. I also cut up the inner liner and reinstalled it.

Jig saw is a better alternate to sawzall.

I have a JCR dagger stubby. Also if you look at my avatar my Jeep is billet silver with color matched fenders. Can you cut them the same way as the black fenders?

And the pictures look awesome! Keep em coming!

A not so great pic of mine:



Spend some time laying out some blue painters tape so you can visualize how they will look in person. Once you get it how you want cut it then trace the cut to transfer to the other side.

This was a while back. Forgot about those angry eyes.
I used a jig saw with a metal cutting blade. The front leading edge closest to the body was cut with a reciprocating saw.
