There is a guy on CL that rents one out for 30? I think? Use a heat gun (not too hot) to let the paint stretch and roll away. I did mine with an easton aluminum bat and a floor jack to raise the axle up and down to use leverage on the tire.

I have a fender rolller at the shop and can do them. I'm out roughly two weeks though as im swamped in projects right now. D Mark Perfomance, 847-621-2265

[MENTION=11647]Fast335i[/MENTION] I'm going to make a thread seeing how many members are interested in having fender rolling services done. If I can get enough people to make it worthwhile to buy the machine, I'll buy one. Just going off of our labor hours and how long it's taken me in the past, it will be $125-$175/ person for the rear fenders depending on how much is involved.

I've got a roller, but honestly it works barely if at all on most cars. I usually use it after the lips have been rolled already.

Do you have the Eastwood one? I used it on my 99 z28 and it worked good.

I don't remember who I bought it from. It works O.K. on some cars that have perfect circle wheel openings. Also depends on the distance from axle center to the lip. I'm just always worried about cracking paint, that doesn't bother some people.

I would be interested with both of my cars. Just as long as the paint doesnt get messed up.
