I just wasn't really happy with the way my rear fender ended up after my initial cut. Seems most of you weren't either. Popular opinion was to "just cut the damned thing off!" Well, today I layed out a shape I liked using 3M Fine Line Masking Tape and I "just cut the damned thing off". :D

I probably could have come up with a better shape if I took more time to think about it but it's too pretty out to be working on it all day. I'm about to go ride! I just thought I'd post a couple pics of the new cut before I hit the road.

Don't fall off the chair trying to see it straight. I didn't get the camera perfectly level. ;)

Well I would say good job...but there isn't chit to see...You cut the damn thing off!

Have you flipped the license plate bracket yet? I cannot remember who...Cookie I think, mentioned flipping it around, it puts the plate at a better angle, looks better in profile.

Nice work.

Thanks Mikey. :D As for the shape, I know it doesn't really show. It's just that I am a bit picky (read as "ANAL") about my work when I do something like this to my toys. I like it to be just right. I'm happy with the shape I got though. Not worried about it. I just figure I could have come up with something different with more time. My ride today was worth more to me than any shape I could have possibly came up with. :super:

side pic plz :D
Oooops. I knew something was missing. Didn't shoot that angle earlier. I was in too big of a hurry to go ride! :D

Here's a quick & dirty side shot I just took for you. Lighting sucks but you can see the lines of my cut ok. ;)
