Default Rolling the fenders

My 03 Cobra is lowered and the rear tires are rubbing against the fenders and getting slightly cut.

Anyone know of any shops I can take the car too? I usually go to Deans Performance but Hans is super busy right now. So checking to see if there are any other shops that anyone recommends.

I have the roller if you wanna borrow it.

let me know. I know a lot of guys worry about their paint when doing the job, and that is for good reason. Gotta be really careful and heat it up during the process. Lots of writeups on how to do it out there.

My rental rate is $30 if you come pick it up, good for 1 car, multiple cars, we can work out a deal. $50 if I have to ship it. I expect it back within 2 weeks.

also, daturbosix has informed me that 5/8ths studs will not fit through the roller. I am working on a solution for that still.

Yea I definitely don't want to do this kind of work myself. Thanks for the offer on the roller I"ll follow up with you soon. I would prefer a shop to do this kind of job.

Goldie's Auto Body did my fenders. This was after I tried doing it myself and discovering someone had done repair to my fenders before I owned the car. #BondoFail I was pissed to figure out my car was in an accident 10 years after I bought it.

yeah, I discovered my quarters had been replaced on my car when I did this. needless to say, my paint all fell off. at that point I cut slots in the fender lip and folded them completely flat with the roller.
