Default Help with fender rolling

Anybody in the tucson area have any experience rolling fenders that would want to help me. I have a jack and fender roller tool and a heat gun. I tried rolling the fenders and only slightly rolled one part and the paint started to crack even with it being heated. Any help would be great. Thanks.

When you say heated.. How hot is that? When I did mine (first time ever) I heated up the bend till I couldn't keep my finger on it for more than a second. If you have a second person to help they could keep heating while you roll. Last thing is make sure you are not over bending.... Go slow and have fun

Not too hot though or you will bubble the paint.

Anybody around the Tucson area willing to roll my fenders? I have the heat gun, the professional fender roller and I will pay someone to roll them. I get back from my deployment in a couple weeks and already have the tires and wheels waiting for me. I had found a guy, but he just moved an hour and a half north of Tucson. Thanks
