cut fender flares

just got em completed and tested em out. look good and no more rubbing!

tools used:
sharpie marker ( i just eyed where i wanted to cut then drew a line to make sure it was about even.)

air rotary cutter (you know the ones with the little discs)

Took about 30 seconds per flare.

light sand paper have to find grit for you all. sanded down any loose hanging pieces of plastic

decided not to paint them bc well...my jeep is not supposed to be shiny and pretty.

That looks awesome
Do you have any close-ups of any of them? How far up the flare did you do your cutting? How are the edges?
This may be my way around tube fenders for now.
