When you do cut the fender, what's the best way to keep the new cut and the rivets holes(from the flare) from rusting?

Sorry, I wasn't all that specific when I typed in the question... Was really tired when I wrote.. What I meant was how far does everybody go up when they cut there fender? 1", 2"... And so on.. I am planning on putting some fender flares on would it be wise to wait for those?

Thanks in advance

8)Wait for the flares, then use them as a template. Remember that there is a big (thick) piece of steel at the front of the wheel well that you don't really want to cut through.

are you running flares...if so, do like it says above and use the flares for a template, if not, use a piece of cardboard...hold it over the opening and trace from behind. cut in half and use the two angled edges to get the angles on the bends right. i usually cut to about 1/2" under the fender top
