Mud Flap Trimming

My front mudflaps drag the sidewalk when I back into the yard to hitch up the trailer. Eventually they will break off so I figured out an easy way to trim them.
As you can see, the curb is almost 7" high.



I traced a line parallel to the bottom of the flap.



Standard tire grooving tool.



Trimmings.



This only took me about 3 minutes after the grooving tool was heated up. My first guess wasn't high enough. I'll just trim a little more after I test it next time.
