Might be easier and better just to buy a patch panel.....they are not that much
I was thinking of cutting about 1/4 inch around the edge and going further down on the bottom....probably right before the mounting holes.

A patch panel is about 40-50 bucks and I figure I will still have the same issues w/cutting and warping. Plus the donor fender is junk besides the lower panel.
