I mean seriously, how hard is it to go stick a square on a factory fender to see what the angle is? And before anyone asks, yes, both sides are identical, and the factory fender is a nice clean 90 degree angle.

So where did you make your cut?
Made the lower cut first to see if that would let it bend upward at the front enough without distorting the top edge. It did so that was good. Then we articulated it and tried to turn the tire, then the next upper cut was made to slide the fender opening larger to clear the tire turning. We had to slide it back almost 3".

Pretty sure covid is the reason for that. It seems to be the go-to reason for pretty much everything these days.

Jokes aside, that shit hit some of us really hard on cognition.
Memory, analytical thinking, ability to have a logical thought process which you can trace back and from which to move forward, properly formulate and verbally express thoughts. Or simply having a clear head and not a fogy confusion.

Regardless of what it is though, i had a good laugh, thanks Blaine

When they are throwing the pieces In The jig for welding you would think someone would say “how come these don’t line up flush anymore”…….
Fook it, weld it!!!!!
