Fender rolling near Asheville

Anyone know of anyone near Asheville that will roll all 4 fenders? Closest I can find is a shop in Boiling Springs/Spartanburg SC. Not a terrible drive, but if it was somewhere close where I can drop it off on lunch and pick it up after work would be perfect. That or something on the weekend. Or If someone on here has a roller That would do it.

Thanks,
-Justin

Good luck finding any kind of help outside of Raleigh or Wilmywoodon this forum it seems... I know there was a guy over on the s2000 forums that was rolling fenders in Charlotte a few years ago.

Maybe not a good idea....

Had my fenders rolled on my 94 E32 740iL in Germany (quality job) in 2003 to fit 295's on my 19" rims. Within a year and a half I started having rust issues only on those fenders.....

The only way rolling causes rust is if the paint cracks from rolling them without heating up the paint. heating up the paint makes it pliable. There's NOTHING local, so I went down to Spartanburg last weekend to have it done.

Possibly did crack the paint, would have been hard to see, jet black and very little room between tires. either way paint started bubbling up after a year and half but I still own it and it is not real bad but I know both fenders have rust now will not do it again but wish you the best with yours....Looks good though when done

Let's see some pics. I was considering a roll until I read CombatNinja's post.

Why? It's done quite often. There wasn't much to roll so we left it and when I put the spacers on I'll check clearance and they'll roll em' as needed. E90 has metal fenders, unlike the un-rollable plastic fenders of coupes.

Why not actually indulge us on what you are referring to instead of posting a meaningless comment? Not to be rude, but saying that does nothing for myself or anyone else reading this thread. If you explained why you are inclined to say that then it would be a completely different story.

I'll post pics of the rear they did though I don't have before photos. I'll post pics of the front if/when I do them, too!

Elite audio, its like 2 shops on one property. one is a wheel/tire/retail shop and the other is the audio shop. Obviously, it's the wheel/tire shop you want to see. Paul and Kaleb worked with me there, great guys

The front fenders on e9X cars are PLASTIC. You can't roll them.

No, coupes and converts are plastic. E90 sedans are metal. Take a dip into the stance pic thread. There's a lot of mention of sedans rolling front fenders.
