Ordered these items about a year, just getting around to installing them. For those not familar here is the link :

http://angelonearth.net/cus...erglass/fenders.html

There are a few pictures, a quick set of instructions, and a template for cutting. The problem is, the template has no scale on it. I can't be sure if I am indeed cutting out the correct size hole. As my dad always said, measure twice, cut once, so here I am.

Seeking advice from The Driver (I will pm him on the side) or anyone else who has installed these in the past.

Original Template



What I BELIEVE is to be cut out and used as a template? Maybe you cut out the entire area including the white (ie , only cut off the gray areas labeled cut off, and use the white to line up with the edges, then cut the gray part out of the fender panel? Again, the instructions are a little vague.




Here is the template (just the gray section) taped to the fender. As you can see centering is difficult, which leads me to believe the white border should be kept on the template. Either way, I wanted to confirm when done I should have approximatly 1 cm of original material left on the front face of the fender for sliding, locking, and glueing.



Same template, but with the white area left on. I am guessing this is how it should look, and again I should end up with a 1 cm lip around the entire area (ie, cut the gray area out from the fender)

The white part is the template. You have it positioned correctly in the last photo. Mark & cut inside of it & you're good to go.

Thanks Paul. It seemed to make more sense after I posted, but you know I only have one shot at it, so thought I would double check. Ill snap a few extra photos as I go about doing it just so others have more of a step by step.

You don't happen to have a measurement of how much you cut off the bottom for the GT version do you?

Cheers.

Sorry, no. I just have my jig marked where to cut. Once you have the fender cut, just place the vent in place & mark it, take it back off to cut it.
