    Yep, love that trick.
    But couldn't even do that as I was down to two zip ties. :anonymous:
    And I used one to hold the one loom I had, to the center brace.

    Too lazy to go to the shop to get more...

    I still have to go in and do the bracket and shorten a couple of the wires anyways so was too lazy to make it OCD perfect today. :)

    Not even ONE day goes by in 2020... and you are already :sawzall:... :rolleyes::thumbsup:

    So which wrap you going with? Crest or Colgate whitening? :rofl:

    Cut looks really good though!
    Guess you've had so much practice you are a master at it now. :cool:

    I guess your removing the snorkel, so you can cut more fender, and fit your 44's right?:boom:

    Just stumbled upon a video of the guys truck getting recovered. Not sure why anyone would venture out to where this guy did. Crazy!

    Do you need to disturb the ARB bumper when swapping the fender?

    Yeah for the number that are out there I don't see a lot of complaints about them.
    Seems simple and well built enough...
    Easier than I thought, to reach in from the top to get to the clutch lever, so no cutting required.
    Lets hope I never have to really put it to the test. ;)
    Maybe the occasional Jeep stuck in the flowerbeds at Starbucks or something...

    Oh first burn of the new year, :bananadead: I deserved that :bowdown:

    Nice! Wonder if you can work it right into the windshield cowl
    Nice! Wonder if you could do another 90deg bend and work it into the space below the windshield cowl

    I could, but don't plan on it yet. Cutting into core support is different from hacking cheap fenders.

    Wait till you see what I am wrapping my fender with, #jdm


    Any metal shop sells it, just need 90 elbow like this https://www.amazon.ca/Universal-Per...ywords=90+elbow+4"&qid=1577930728&sr=8-5&th=1

    plus a single 3" aluminum tube with a couple of bends and drain holes.

    With some thick gloves and some practice you could use one of these and bend/mold PVC conduit into a nice near seamless piece..

    PVC heater/bender... can rent them or borrow them from large electrical shops.

    Heat gun for small touch ups..

    I have access to tube bender up to 3" now, that's why the choice of aluminum sounds better than PVC to me.

    If you're building it out of aluminum you should isolate it where it contacts any steel. The dissimilar metals will corrode.
