    Question How to trim front for tire clearence?

    Has anyone done a how to or do you just take a saws-all and hack at it?

    Do you have to remove the casing around or can you just push it back after trimming?

    I need to remove no more than a quarter of an inch...

    What part do you want to trim. If its the bumper or inside the fender I use a die grinder with a cut off wheel. Than I spray with a little undercoating.

    It's inside the fender towards the rear. I already did the trimming by the bumper which was super easy.

    I trimmed the fender also with a cut-off wheel, then undercoated it.
