you can do it, its been brought up many times, the only problem is rain, you are going to get it all over your nice hot engine...

a few of us toronto chapter members are trying to see what, if anything, we can do about it, drop by a meet sometime, or send me a PM

Be sure to post info and pics if possible. I want to do this before I leave for school as well, and need a little more info on how someone pulls this off. Thanks!

A Sawzall is an all-around good tool - just get the right kind of blade. Sawzall's are handy everywhere for bigger jobs, much like a Dremel tool for smaller jobs. I think Sawzall is the most common method EB owners use to cut their fenders because their relatively cheap and relatively easy to use.
