Default Remove or cut fender liner for u dumped guys

So in eating my fenders and at times I can hear it rubbing while driving.
Question is did ur guys remove or cut between 10-2 o clock? On my sc3 I had to re wire. N tuck my harness an I ended up taking off the liner. Well it sucked when it rained cause all te water splashes uP in the foot panel area :/

Just curious on what u other gs owners did. Thanks

thats what I've been told many times, I've been told to cut my fenders instead of rolling, many GS owners claim rolling aint gonna do much... Im wondering myself where to get my fenders cut professionally. People claim its so easy a monkey can do it but i find it a bit of exaggeration, me and other car enthusiast were saying "You must need a damn steady hand to cut it straight" other than that i was thinking as well, don't you need to sand down the cut fenders afterwards? cutting metal will leave it sharp ??? thats a theory that me and a lot of people are wondering.

But as for my GS right now, my tires are a millimeter away from my fenders, it isn't rolled or cut yet. Im rubbing but the fenders aren't eating away at my tires, for the passed several months i still see the tire "hairs" poking out. I don't know what you guys call it, i call it mustache haha

Well my fenders are rolled and beaten flat all around. Lol I was going to shave but read if u didn't reinforce it with welds it will split. This is the more correct way as u get a smooth, skinny lip.
As for me i don't really rub my fenders per say anymore just my fender liners. Lol I think I'm just going to rip them out completely.

^ You can use a heat gun to mold them flat against the inside. Works pretty well.

I was lazy and ended up destroying them driving slammed, so I just removed them. Heat gun is my favorite method though.

What about the part that used to be held on by the fender lip? Mines just hanging down from there since the lips been flattened. I think in just going to remove the liner. Tired of ppl going, hey!! Ur dragging something. When really its my fender liner running along my tires :/

Just cut a portion of it like you mentioned on your first post. That way, you can still keep some of it.

About fender rolling/shaving

Roll front shave rear. Its a must. You dont shave the front because of structural purposes. And you dont roll the back because your fender will dimple.

i took out the fender trims and rolled the fronts mostly the tabs that hold the liner.. the rears i cut with an air saw an finished with a flap wheel grinder..or buy some adjustable rear upper control arms for an IS300 to camber it..

IS300 RUCA fit on GS300's? Studio is in progress in getting their adjustable RUCA for 2GS's. Alot cheaper than the JDM parts available.
