Mark a long enough frame section to allow your wheel proper clearance. (4) The depth of the notch is also dependent on the desired wheel clearance.
As a good starting point, SSM suggests slicing the frame flush with the inner fender. (5) Keep in mind it is always best to cut less to begin with and grind to exact fit rather than trying to cut to exact dimensions.
