you need a heat gun... if not, you will crack the paint...

I have heard you leave the tire on and just roll the bat over it, and go all the way arount the fender...

I take it you got the new tires?

Ya know, I read the title to this thread, and thought "Hmmm.. Alex is REALLY fired up to help Blugin find the perps who dinged up his car!"

Little did I know he was going to go all medieval on his -own- car

( I have no helpful advice in tasks like this, zero-experience... just snarky comments, of which I have a plethora )

haha james i was thinking the same thing!! Oh and what Dan said about leaving the wheel on is correct. Go slow!!! New paint most likely won't chip or crack. Go slow and be careful!!! It also helps if you use a dremal to cut slits in the inner part so it can roll easier. I'm not sure on how much of lip there is on a WRX/STI, but if there is any, make some cuts. That way you can kinda do it in sections.

its about a half inch that goes slightly downwards. I probably dont need to roll it flat for clearance I just need it to go upwards or maybe even just at a right angle with the body.

Edit: well it seems to be going ok with a hair dryer and a louisvill slugger Though I cant just stick the bat in there and roll it back and forth that wouldnt do anything. But using the head of the bat on the fender and the tire as a fulcrum(Im pretty sure thats what its called been a while since whatever class taught me that) I can pry up about a quarter inch at a time, just doing that slowly has been working.

So far no paint damage other then what was already done by the rubber strips getting eaten. FYI those rubber strips are full of metal.

I realize this thread is old, so maybe someone in the Austin area has the special fender rolling tool? If not, then the technique for fender rolling is simply to 'pry' the lip up every 1/4 inch using a piece of wood - right Alex? Do you achieve a pretty smooth result that way?

Of course I read it, and vortechcoupe's also. afpdl's just made more sens as far as faisability, I concur with afpdl it sounds mighty tough to stick a bat in there and just roll it. What I can imagine is to have someone move the car backward/forward with the bat jammed in there... I can only fit a finger between the tire (225/17/45) and fender btw.

you must be lowered... try using a jack to put it on jackstands... and heat helps soften it up...

Thats what jacks are for, my rear tires currently have -1 finger gap. I did mine with the stock wheels and tires on the car, just used the tire as a pivot point and pryed, there is no actuall "rolling" involved. Its not completely smooth on the inside but that was never a concern of mine as its the inside of the fender. It may be worth it to drive down for forced4's deal, I may use it to get a little more clearance.

I have seen, in my experience, that it is best to let a bodyshop do it. It is VERY easy to crack the paint.

if the bodyshop cracks your paint they repaint it for free

Salaki is planning a trip to Austin sometime soon I hear. Speaking of paint... are you sure it's paint they put on our cars?
