Question Fender trimming

I have recenting removed my fenders and fender lining to have my XJ undercoated. Now, though, I don't think I want to put them back on or even try to as I have snapped off probably half of the studs from each fender. So, I was just wondering if anyone has any tips, pictures, or how-to websites to guide me on my fender trimming endeavor. My goal is to stay reasonable with the cuts as big tires (37's) are not in the near future as well as try to keep a some-what "stock" look. I have seen a few Xj's where the rear fenders are cut up to the first lip (just on top of the holes) then rolled under to keep a somewhat stock look, but I wonder how to do it without getting a new paint job. I have a two door and I hear that I can cut away a little more than the four doors, is this true? Concerning the front, I am not as worried about going a little bigger (maybe cut off the whole lip entirely) but my biggest question is how to cut so close to the seams on both the front and back. If anyone can help me out with info or lives in STL and wants to earn a couple extra dollars doing it for me I would appreciate it Thanks!
