Austin - Fender Roll

Does anyone local have a fender roller? I was about to rent one and have it shipped, but thought I'd ask Need to roll my rears to space them out.

Shon...you might want to re-think this. Some who have gone before and done this have wished they hadn't.

+1 Not a DIY, you can crack your paint if you don't know what you're doing...

Alan, I agree for most DIY's - I have giving it a lot of though. I have rolled fenders in the past and have plenty of experience doing them. I was going to rent the roller from a shop in that I've used in the past, but wanted to see if anyone local had one before doing so. Most people over-roll their fenders and cause exterior cosmetic and paint damage. I'm only looking to roll the inside lip for a few more Millimeters (like 3-5Mil). (no exterior change that the eye can see) It just takes patience, a good heat gun and don't be too aggressive with the roll :-)

Shon - As "Willie" from the Swamp People TV show says, "if you think you can come out here and do this yourself, well...good luck to ya!"

Hope it comes out ok. You coming to the track event on March 31 or the Bluebonnet drive on April 21?
