I am trying to decide what to do with my rear wheel wells.  They are not in good shape, as in I am going to have to make the bottom 2-3 inches of them where they attach to the quarters and also where they fasten to the inner floor. I am wondering if it would be easier to just remove them and make some mini tubs.  Does anybody have pictures or instructions, etc on what all's involved in making and installing some. 

On my Dart the springs have already been moved in and are directly under the frame rails, so I'm guessing that with mini tubs, I could run wider wheels and tires also??

I just did mine this weekend. Pretty easy, 0.045" razor wheel in a 4" grinder. I cut-out both sides in less than 1 hour. Now I just have to weld them up. I grabbed someones pictures from the photo galley on the board. I can email them to you if you would like.
