I set the coilovers on their softest (lowest) settings so I knew I could bottom them out to check for tire-to-tin clearance, but first I had to make some room to move. This whole process will be an exercise in "sneaking up on it," as it were, and not cutting away more metal than needed. That would only make additional work on top of the tediousness I'm about to embark on. I used a piece of scrap steel to set my marker on to transfer the tire's profile, in a bigger circle, onto the inner fender. I had a good idea the suspension would be traveling at least this far.
