I had to bend mine up a little so the wheels would clear and was wanting to clean the lips up a little before I take it in to the shop and was wondering what you guys do to make them look ok/less noticiable

Mine are actually cut about every 1.5" and then pressed back against the fender itself. We did about 1.5 feet of the rear fender lips so that you could only tell if ya ran your hand on them. I need to spray undercoating on it now to protect the bare edges from rusting.

That's what I was considering, making some relief cuts and then bending the lip back on it's self ... but I'd like to see what other people did as well.

When I did mine I cut the lip every so often like oklagmcruiser said. I took a piece of 2" square steel tubing and cut into it enough so the sheetmetal would go into it then just bent it up. Worked really well.

I just rolled mine up with a small PVC pipe pressed against the tire with the force being applied so that the fender lip bent upwards :)
