-Remove Fender Flares
-Jack up tire to contact point, check bumpstops and consider adding extended bumpstops or stacking and gluing pucks
-Use a china marker/wax pencil/sharpie/wife's eyeliner to draw a smooth radius and pleasing cut out profile
-Repeat on opposite side and compare for symmetry - consider things behind such as washer fluid tank and wiring.
-Apply masking tape to cover paint on the "keeper" side of the fender.
-Select cuttting tool of choice. Jig saw with 24 tpi blade is a good choice to avoid tweaking metal, smooth cuts, and limiting paint burn. Sazall and Angle Grinder are faster, but render a cruder finished look, can wobble the metal, and the grinder while very fast tends to burn the paint.
-Dress edges with a file/sandpaper and apply some sort of rust paint/primer to cover bare steel
-Add trim if desired. 3M and Protekto are durable choices.
NOBODY has to have dog turd looking cut outs unless they don't care to try harder or just don't care period.
