wow 20 minutes a fender!

way to long... took me 3 minutes or less per front fender. and 2 minutes per rear fender. straight lines, looked great till i crinkled both fenders off road. i'll give you the key to doing them fast.
2 things
-saw-z-all
-do it on the car.

you still get good clean cuts. how do you think eric bobbed the bed of the brat. with a saw-z-all. not trying to be a pain.

it looks great though!! wasn't trying to be a pain. just constructive critisism. looks awesome!

i am a fan of the sawzall as well. Everybody tells me I shouldnt use the sawzall, but they haven't seen the light. Its way more controllable, safer (no spark showers), quieter, makes a cleaner cut to begin with, and not any slower than discs
