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[27] ) 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.
