Default How to pull fenders???

I've seen people use fender rollers, hammers, and bats to "roll" fenders, but what/how exactly do you "pull" a rear fender? What tools do you use or how do you do it?

You can roll the rear fender the same as you do the fronts. If you are talking about flaring your fenders, that is best left to a reputable body shop.

I think the OP is referring to pulling the rear fenders. I'm assuming rolling and pulling are 2 different things. I would also like to know the difference. I hear/see the term used a lot recently with the whole aggressive fitment movement. Any of you Norcal guys want to step in a enlighten us as to what exactly is a fender pull and how do you do it?

A roll is when you make the lip flat. A pull is using the same tool and going beyond just flattening the lip..depending on how aggressive the pull is it often leaves a slight flare..

IMO a simple roll can be done with any tool, but a pull MUST be done with the proper fender roller tool.

it also depends on what year your car is.

if it is an 05+ STi you're going to be hard pressed to use a fender roller in the rear.

How To: Properly Modify 05+ GD STi Rear Fenders

will give you a little how to on properly modifying the rear fenders, if you wanted more of a "Pull" you would just hammer it further.

for an 04 or a GDA,GRB,GC do the fender roller.

So I know the fender can be rolled without damaging the paint, but can you also pull/flare the rear quarters without damaging the paint? Just curious.
