    Need to do some major clearance work on the inner front fender and want to see how people have done this?

    From pictures it looks like many have just cut the fender and left a sharp edge?

    Show me how you did it.... PLEASE!

    I did it the lazy way. Cut the outer fender. Pie cut the inner fender and pushed it out of the way.

    Zoom in on his pics and you can see it. He made a bunch of cuts from the outer fender in towards the engine. He then folded the metal up.

    Very unsymmetrical fender chop and pie cuts.

    Cut it all out here. Makes fender removal a cinch. Hope these help.
