That seems like the advice I was given...mark an inch from the edge and then mark an inch from that point, mark a point just below the body line and draw both marks to that point, cut out the pie shape and tap over to join the pieces...tack weld the seam...Jack said:For my swinger, I cut the pie shape out of the front of the wheel lip; then used reproduction chrome moldings to cover the surgery. It looks stock, and I gained over an inch.
My paint was finished when I did it, so I was really nervous, but I put blue masking tape on the paint, marked it and cut it with a fine tooth jigsaw. Maybe not the best, but you wouldn't know it by looking.
This way it took me less than an hour for both sides...
