What i did after is clean up the area smooth all the edges and im thinking of making a new little bracket for the bottom of the fender liner. (doesn't really move but i figured why not) after that i got a can of bed liner paint and sprayed the area a few times over. No one has noticed t as of yet. Hope this helps.
Uhhh. OMG. Wrong offset man, you should not have had to take that much off.

If I was a prospective Raptor owner a few years from now and I saw some hacked up shit like that, I'd tell the guy "ok thanks for your time"...

That is some pretty drastic surgery. I hope you cleaned it up some. Looks like a bit of a hack job in the pics.

imagine... the structural integrity, aerodynamics and over all performance of the truck must have gone out the window by taking off some plastics and foam. The horror. In any case that was BEFORE cleaning up the area and purely to show the other member how it will look while he is modifying it. No use sending him a completed picture as it wouldn't give him an accurate idea.

Instead of bling-bling, hack-hack.

Thanks for your pic. It really shows what all needs to come off.

Do you think I could remove the inner liner, do all that cutting then reinstall the liner and pull it back with a zip tie or screw to cover everything thats cut?
