Strut Chop - The Sequel

The first time I chopped my Sportster's rear fender struts was in October of 2008.  Well, the cutting wheel came back for round two, 3 1/2 years later.

I marked the lines with pinstriping tape.

Chop number one...

...chop number two...

...and then a little shaping with the grinder.

I drilled my "mini-fender" too so that it can attach securely to the shock-mounting bolt holes.

Before I paint the strut ends, I'll shape them further with my Dremel.  If everything works out, you won't see the ends anyway but more on that soon.
