    Well with my BFG i escaped without having to trim the valance but now I'm getting new tires and its going to need to be trimmed back. Any tips on what tools and a process to approach this at. Any help would be good because I really don't wanna mess it up.

    Well... believe itor not, tin snips work great, or a heavy duty box knife and a steady hand does real well and doesn't leave burrs like a saw or disc sander does. If you must use a saw, you can fine tune the trim with the box cutter blade.

    good luck

    Sawzaw is what I used. Then cleaned it up with some sandpaper.

    If I use sandpaper to smooth it after cutting will it discolor the plastic?
