Triming

To clear the 39s we trimmed a small portion of the front of the rear wheelwell and a large part off the rear bumper and rear inner wheelwell. After cutting we took some thin sheetmetal and welded it in to cover the holes. To slowly spot-weld the pieces into place, we used a Hobart MIG welder on one of the lowest settings. Another benefit of doing your first bodywork within the wheelwells is that you can cover it up with a thick coat of spray undercoating if it's not perfect.
