Chevy K10 Front Fender Trimmin?

Hey Yall....I'd like to see some pics of how you trimmed the Front Fenders on you Mid 80's Blazers, Trucks or Subs.... I'm looking for a nice clean trim pics for a '83 K10 project we are working on. I'll enclose a Pic. We are currently running 4" of lift and 35's. It rubs on the front of the front fender now, just slightly tho. But next week some 36's and 1" Zero-Rate Leaf goes in and I'm sure trimming will be needed.

Some info on Bushwacker Cut Out Flares and pics would be cool too...

Thanks Guys for your time!
Thats the Current Rubbage....

Flexxed up....

Cut the front fender fangs about an inch or so below the parking light , cut the inner panel behind that a little farther down so you can hammer it up and still be able to hide a funnel in the fender hole underhood without it falling out . That gets you lots of room where you rub now .

Then you have an excuse to ditch the front bumper for tubes wrapped around the edges , which makes a great high lift point if built right .

For the rear of the front fenders , the cleanest way is to go right to the edge of the inner wheelwell , this gets you a little more than an inch there .

Thats just for a clean truck .

I had to hack the shit out of my fenders on my little truck to clear 36's with 2 inches of lift. My big truck has bushwacker cutout flares and I love them, I know they are not popular, but I like them. Keep in mind the truck that has the flares doesnt get rammed into trees or rocks or other fun shit, just mud, sand and snow. I would never spend the money for bushwackers if you are going to scrape up your truck on the tight trails. On the truck I hacked I am adding cheap rubber flares to keep it legal, doesnt look too bad for a piece of shit 400 dollar truck. I can get pics of both if that helps you.
let me know

I have 36s on my truck with worn out original springs no lift and with a little hammer mod to the very bottom of the fender they only rubbed a little when i did this:

I've just finished my shackle flip in the back and will be doing a 4" superlift in the front this weekend just to make sure it all clears...
