I did it with a heat gun and a 1.5" wooden dowl rod and some 1x2 wood blocks. Worked like a charm. Minimal cracking of the paint. No rubbing.

best bet if you don't want the paint to crack is to have the inner lip cut by a good body shop as opposed to rolling them...i don't know of any body shops up here in phoenix since i've only lived here for a year, but vanderpools in tucson does an awesome job
