Plasma cutting makes a clean cut, and eliminates the chance of rust or paint chipping.
It's actually a Plasma Torch; the term plasma cutting is more of a technique. You'll still need to paint around the area that was cut, or it will rust. Like varmin said, just get the lip rolled and save a lot of work. You can also bend the lip back afterwards if you are trying to sell the car as stock, where-as if it was cut off you would have to have a new piece welded back on there.

What are your ideas about using a dremel to shave down the fender lips?

When you say I have to paint the area after it has been cut, would Honda touch up paint work?

Looks good. Very clean. I just don't particularly like the looks of the factory tail lights, and DIY smoked headlights; even though I have smoked headlights on my car right now, too. I'm going to get a new set of black-housing TYC's, though.

I'm probably in the minority, with most of my opinions, though. *shrug* lol
