Ok, so here are updates of the fenders...ready for final grinding/sanding. Just have to tack on some light tabs that will sit in the small hoops on the front.

www.woodwardfab.com has a pipe notcher that works pretty good. its like $70 though. but you can do multiple angles. then you just take the grinder and clean it up and it fits exilent. ill have to show you pictures of the baja car that we are building and the notcher.
