I just did a rear quarter chop on my shorty and i cut about 4-5cm to accomodate 35" tires. In the second picture you can see how much room there is while flexing. I'm running stock springs with extended shackles.

I had a fair bit of rust in some places so it was hard to get it looking decent. Thankfully it will all be covered with fender flares :)

I just cut with angle grinder and since my quarter panels were both quite dented I bolted in a piece of galvanized steel plate and covered with checker plate aluminum painted black. Was quite strong could put a high lift jack under them no problem. If you were good with a welder and your panels were still straight you could just cut bend and weld
