Default Re: cant booleen out wheel wells

I get the best (and most predictable) results by following a few simple rules.
make sure normals point into the proper direction on both objects (nose-cone & cylinder used for cutting)
make sure both objects are closed (maybe close the nose-cone temporarily at its base)
make sure the mesh resolution is high enough

here's my _very_ rough attempt at it (both objects were 'double sided', then select base object first, shift select cylinder to cut-out, then boolean-subtract):
