    When is the best time to remove the cartilage in a fox ear? Before or after tanning? This is the first time I am trying this. I have always used the bonded ear method before. Thanks.

    After, without question, simply because of the slippage issue that they are prone to. Many say they can do a great bondo ear but most fail, IMO.

    Maybe not byrdman, but it is something I see and hear about enough so I thought I would try it and see if it made any difference. A person has to try something new every now and then or you become stagnant!

    Thanks for the input memorymakertaxi and 3bears.
