Bushwacker cutout flares.. Help!

I guess I can post this in this section.. Anyone have experience installing these? I'm having a pretty hard time installing mine.. Directions say to cut sheet metal after cutting fenders, but I don't know how much to cut, I don't want to go overboard. Any other tips as well would be greatly appreciated I'm trying to make this as clean of a job as possible and as of now its not looking so good. I never was much for body work.. Thanks guys

Step four of the instructions tell you how much to cut off. There is also a diagram. Follow the instructions and you cant go wrong. Don't worry about going overboard, I followed the instructions, and there was alot of material left. After wheeling my tuck I even went and cut more out.

Well my biggest problem is it seems like there's no definitive way of cutting, i just feel like the fender flares wont be on in exactly the right location when I'm done. But from what I'm hearing there's quite a bit of room for error
