With the front spoiler trimmed, I still needed more inner fender clearance up front where the fender liner trim was initially done. This is because after installing my suspension lift, it put the tires in a different position in the wheel wells. I came up with a solution that did not require a heat gun or trimming of the inner front fender liner area.
First I removed the fender liners. Next, I took the small metal screw clips off and traced a new position closer to the fender liner edge.
I used simple side cutters to enlarge the original hole wide enough for the metal clips to slip in.
With the new slots, I reinstalled the metal clips in the new position.
Here’s a photo of the before/after locations of the metal clips:
…and the results after re-installing the fender liners:
I’m guesstimating that I gained around 1/2” to 3/4” more clearance along the bottom of the fender liner area. this without the need of a heat gun to reshape the fender liner itself. Now that I have the front lip spoiler trimmed and the front of the fender liner adjusted, the next (and last) thing I need to mod a little more is the OEM front mud flaps. I’ll do this a little later.
