Im putting a 3 inch lift kit onto my 83 Leone Hatch on the weekend. Also i am fitting my 27inch tyres from my wagon onto it.

When i put them onto the wagon i had to cut the front fenders a little to fit the wheels on without rubbing. But on the back i had to do no cutting.

On the hatch im assuming i will have to do the same amount of cutting on the front fenders... but do i have to cut off anything at the back to make them fit?

Thanks guys
