have a good face shield so you can see... took off the flare cut above the factory holder crap took the end caps off ...... looks alright if not weather stripping cleans it up

if you cant see by using a messed up face shield then it could when you look at it close, just go slow, let the sparks fly lol

If you're using an angle grinder to make your cuts, cover the paint with something. My paint is royally screwed from the sparks the cutoff wheel threw everywhere.

Use a dremel with reinforced cut off wheels. It will take longer to do but the results came out awesome for me. Its easier to control to get the cut you want
