trimmed yj fenders / diy tube fendrrs

Looking to trim my yj fenders, the fronts are really dented, and the tub is comp cut. I was thinking of making them into tube fenders for extra support, just not sure of how it will look

Very nice MM! Can't wait to build my tube fenders.
Here is mine trimmed.


More pics here of when I did it...not a tutorial, but quite a few pictures.
Hacked flares/fenders

I trimmed them. Ditched the marker . I think they look great, undecided about using the support. I can't seem to make the picture small enough to upload. It is my current profile pic

I feel ya' MM, the flares will be a must later down the road, wifey already has said something about water kicking up when on roads..... about 2-3 weeks I will start to fab some actual tube fenders. Time & money...time & money! lol

Before and after. I used a photo reducer app, so if quality sucks, sorry.
