Bilt cool fender vents

Does anyone have the instructions for the Bilt cool fender vents? They are not on the website and I was hoping to get an idea how much to cut.

Thanks!

Just leave enough to attach the vents to.

They are a fair amount shorter then my inner fenders, did you leave some at the bottom or chop and leave it off? Do they mount from the inside or outside the engine compartment?

Iíve mounted two sets of them one set on a fiberglass tub and the other on a regular metal body. Basically all I did was center them on the outside of the fender well then clamp them in place and drill holes for each corner, install and tighten those bolts and then drill and install the rest of the bolt holes and bolts. Once I had everything tightened in place I went around the edge of the vent with a sharpie to leave an out line of the vents. Then uninstall them and take one inch masking tape and lay it along the sharpie outline,mark along the edge of the masking tape with a sharpie and you have your line to follow when you cut out the material where the vents will be. I think along the bottom edge of the fender well I probably have 3/4 of inch between the vent and the edge of the fender well. I hope this helps answer your question.
