View Full Version : trimming fenders
09-03-2006, 10:16 PM
Im going to be trimming my rear wheel wells...and my fronts a bit as well...and i have never done any body work before...they have to be cut out quite a bit (toyotas tend to rust dont they ) so I was told sheet metal would have to be welded in. Has anyone attempted this and have any suggestions, or does someone know of a good not too expensive place for something like this???

I used the jigsaw and a metal blade and cut off 2 inches on the front of my truck. No problems so far. Riveted in about 8 small L brackets and used the siding fron a Chamvers chip trailer to make flares to cover the tires up.
Cops havent said anything and neither has the DOT.
grinder!!! grab extra disks because if you run out to early youll loook like a goof rippen down the road with 3/4 ofyour truck flappen in the wind!

front is pretty easy, back does require welding, if you need some to do it i can pm me if you do..
trim as much as you can before yeah have to add more metal then add bump stops
