This is the best one I have that shows the fenders.

I just cut across the crease or whatever and will flap wheel it down - takes TIME but should be the best result.

First pass and then had to come back to "work", I'll go back out for another smoke break soon!

Have no fear, it looks chopped but there is a lot that needs cut out of the front for it to come down.

My best work yet if I do say so myself...

I bet you I opened and closed the hood 100 times to get it about as perfect as I could.

Off to paint. Pulling the hood and grill. Clear JK turns in the grill.

Got a little more done on Easter here and there. Intake tube chopped down to accept an eBay air filter, still waiting on the TB spacer. Got the passenger inner fender all bolted in - still need to address the vacuum canister though I just realized.

So I didn't take any pics but I would like to mention I had to buy a new seat. Honestly im not sure what was wrong with it, but the OG seat wouldn't flip forward and it had gangster lean. I bought another 06 seat(specific seat cover) but it wasn't as nice as I would have hoped. So I found this great document:

https://www.instructables.com/id/Rem...r-for-Washing/

and I went to swapping my covers over onto this other seat. The document makes you feel really good about yourself, but wowsers that sucked super bad. I cant say I ever want to do it again, but I would certainly be quicker about it next time. So the last pic is of the seat back in and it works nicely! It was every bit of about a 3 hour job all said and done.
