All my power tools are Dewalt and I have been in the building industry for many years. They make great quality tools. You can't go wrong with Dewalt. Also a big fan of Milwaukee and Porter-Cable

Sure, thats a nice sawzall, but the absolute wrong tool IMO for trimming fenders. They are not precise enough and do not make a clean cut. They are great for demolition and hacking **** apart you don't want, but its the last tool I'd use to trim fenders on a jeep.

May want to try a mini angle grinder with a cutting disk.

Ive been reading threads were they used one. An air one though. I dont have time to do this before I take my aircompressor back home. So I wont be able to use it afterwards.

So whats a good CORDED tool to use? Do they make corded angle grinders?

A hot knife works very well with a steady hand
