I've yet to see factory painted flares to be cut. I've only seen the black plastic fenders cut and seamed with that door jam edger. Not sure how it would look with gloss black fender with dull black edge. I want to cut mine but unsure of how it will look with the painted flares. If anybody has done it, post pics

Mine are factory painted and cut using black edge trim. The trim looks fine on black fenders or if you smooth em out well enough, you can run without the trim on black fenders.

thanks. long-term plan is for tube fenders but these give me the clearance i needed (for free) and i think look way better then stock. it was actually way easier than i thought it was going to be too.
