Default Who has their fenders rolled and where did you get it done?

I'm expecting to have to roll my fenders next week. Who has gotten thier rolled in MD or Northern VA? Where did you get it done, how much, and what kind of horror stories do you have?

Thanks

I got mine done at CDE Motorposts, but they are now called Ultimate Performance. I think it cost around $200, but it was done RIGHT. Heat gun to soften the paint, and the special tool that fits on the hub and actually rolls under the fender. I have absolutely no paint cracks and the fenders look great.

paint cracks, older it is its easier for it to crack. There nothing you can do about it if it does, they do their best not to let that happen. Thats why Curry's or CDE they both make you sign waviers that say their not responible if it does crack.
If your car was repainted by a body shop it has more of a chance of cracking. If i fix the camber on my car the fenders has to be rolled but i'm not taking the chance of the paint cracking.

Okay, maybe this is a dumb question, but what is "fender rolling"? I have heard the term quite a bit, but I don't know what it is.

if you look under your fender, there is a lip pointing inwards. You basically fold/roll this up flat against the inside of the fender.

Get a body shop to do it.. You need to use a heat gun on it as well while its being done so if currys didn't use one that could be the reason it came out ishty. I believe Wagon Werks can do this

edit: heat gun not hairdryer

thanks, tim.

When did you get it done. I'm just wondering if you've driven through all this crap on the road and the paint is still all intact.

Looks like I might have to pay cde a visit.

Has anyone else had it done somewhere else?

Yeah, driven through some of this crap, and everything is still perfect. Given, the car only had about 3K miles on it when I got the fenders rolled so everything was nice and fresh. I'm sure that helped.

I used a Louisville Slugger on mine...$9.95 from Sports Authority...took about 7 minutes with a friends help...

This was on my 911 Carrera so a WRX may be different...but somehow I doubt it

Any other places closer to the Baltimore area? I went with 215's and I have hella rubbing. Any idea of what I can expect to pay? I know you can buy the tool for like $500 bucks, so I don't really think it should cost $200 to have it done.

We have used the baseball bats .The paint did crack but we touched it up with under coating no problems.The lip is rolled under so no one sees it.But the Waiver is a must.

I have used the old baseball bat or a piece of pipe wrapped in duct tape works fairly well also since it doesn't grind the metal against the paint as you do it.

i ended up using a wooden baseball bat, too. The paint will crack if your car is older, but you can't see it anyway, and you shouldn't have problems if you touch it up soon after. 245/40 17s fit great with minor fender roll in the rear only.

So how do you do this baseball bad method. Just stick it in between the tire and the fender and push up? Or what?

Stick the bat between the tire and the backside of the fender at an angle at the rear of the fender and have somebody slowly give the car some gas so that it barely moves forward. Then have them slowly backup. Thats basically the short version.

A few friends have taken their fenders off before and simply cut off the excess metal and then taped off the fender and covered the bare metal thats left with a rust proofing primer and then basic black paint.
