What would it look like if I cut the front of my front fenders off like this?

Why not?

Those fenders are cracked all around the front.

I will be getting a one piece front end someday.

Here is a pic of a narrow eye fender, its not the best but you can see how the front angles back. If you do cut it try to do it like that, it will look better.
