my 1" off horizontal line gave me 1/4' clearance. if you want 1/2" clearance create a horizontal line at 3/4" up

pain in the ass to take out the long ass bolts holding fender with wheel installed so...........

1. remove wheel then remove fender
2. lay fender on towel on work bench, remove grommets
3. As you look at the OEM holes your will see OEM molding line running vertically between the holes with a slight angle to the rear its the same on both sides this will be a reference line
4. using 2" masking tape just cover holes starting at the bottom of holes 2" up. tape should be horizontal with holes
5. here comes the geometry, draw a line horizontal threw center of the holes, at a 90* angle measure up 1" each end and mark, connect the dots with another horizontal line
6. more geometry, using the angle molding reference line, slide a credit card to it and draw a line following it till it crosses the two horizontal lines. measure center to center of holes keeping in mind the number which is at your vertical reference line, transfer those numbers to you top line using your vertical line number as a reference point.
7. connect the dots, (geometry) you have just created a parallelogram, repeat other side the box you created SHOULD/BETTER be leaning towards the rear of the fender!!!!!!
8. dill holes at upper corners with 1/8 bit, drill holes with 1/2 bit the drill to OEM size
9. cut off access fender at top of OEM holes, file lightly and round edges
10. reinstall grommets, install metal bushings with washer side out (passenger side only)
11. reinstall fender, add new washers on inside (passenger side only) do not fully tighten!!. install wheel.
12. adjust fender and tighten bolts

here is a drawing, sorry I am not an artist. sorry about spelling, no spell check on camera, not to scale or actual fender design
sorry my a**. that is an easy to follow, well drawn template.
nice job!

Be very careful or bad things can happen. One hole was off by a bit, wind broke what material was left around the hole and pushed the front of the fender down on my tire melting it. Just a word of caution, looked great before being melted.

lower fender mod

This post is a little late, but we used some chrome pieces with 4 holes drilled. Didn't have to worry about drilling the fender and making the mounting holes strong enough for the grommets.
