You shouldn't put yourself down like that....you really are a good person and should have higher self esteem than that!

Nope. Went stronger than Cruiser Iron. I did do some rough sketching and measuring for my rear tube fenders though. LOTS of rubbing on the trail yesterday.

Rubbing is not a problem just the tires self clearancing! Carry on....

Any suggestions on a deoderizor?
Mine does too. I think it is coupled with the neoprene seat covers. Either way, it gives it that new car smell.

Started working on clearing the new tires today...WOW. They hit a lot of stuff.

The most obvious was the fenders themselves, at the back.

So, I got to trimming:

I started with a sawzall to make a clean cut without messing up the paint too much:





Then I got out the plasma and took off the pinch weld only, and then pounded the two halves of the inner fender together. I pounded the inner most part of the fender back first, and then pounded the outter part over that, which makes about a 3/4" overlap. Also took out the lower part of the rocker weld there, and pounded the lower section of the fender back in a bit too:







I then cleaned everything reall well, etch-primered everything, and when that was dry I put in a bunch of 3M Autobody seam sealant. This stuff worked really well on my tranny tunnel, and I like it a lot.



I did the same on the passenger side, but only took a shot of the finished product because I was pushing to get it done so the sealant could set up over night so that I can put the undercoating on it tommorow.



Tomorrow I'm going to work on the upper A-arms, which rub at full droop only.

And, to boot, my idler, which I put brand new bushings into just a few weeks ago, and haven't wheeled on at all, is now REALLY shot again. My new steering set up is going to be my very next project.

Can remember, was your pinch seam already clearanced for the 33" tires? Mine looks a lot like yours minus the primo 3M filler and a little less hammer work. I trimmed the seam with an angle grinder a little IIRC before going to the ball peen.
