Sawzall Blade Size? Brand?

What kind of blades should I run in my Dewalt to cut my Cherokee's fenders?
Thanks

Any fine tooth will do, but I agree Millwawkee makes a good blade. Also, if ya have one, a good orbital jig saw work quite well on fenders, too.

First off, before I read the post, the title made me smile.

Secondly, Milwaukee has always worked for me, especially since Home Depot has them on sale once a week.

A thin (1/16") cut off wheel on an angle grinder is much better for cutting fenders. After trying this once you'll never go back to the Sawsall.

We did one fender with a sawzall and one with a grinder and the final two with tin snips. Turns out the tin snips were quickest and did a good job.

Tin Snips: One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija Board Principle. It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your future becomes.

My father was a sheetmetal worker for 40+ years so his skill probably was beyong the black arts of a Oujia board.

This is what we used:
