How-To: Roll Fenders for $15

Is your car slammed?

Do your tires rub against your fender?

Are you horny as shit right now?

Is your tire being shredded by your fender because you are just too damn low?

Does your fender look like this?





then you probably need your fenders rolled



http://www.rollyourfender.com/instruction.html

thats how you roll your fenders....

assuming you coughed up the 250-300$ purchasing a fender rolling tool or the 100$ to rent it.

I saw one of the tools the other day and thought to myself why the hell cant I make something to roll my fenders to make my wide (wider than stock) rims fit without f**king shit up!

well I went to HDR (home depot racing) and bought some 2 inch pvc piping along with 2 pipe connector clamps (ran me a total of about 15$)

here's what I got







and you'll need something to heat the fender with, preferably a HEAT GUN, you can use a hair dryer on high of you want but the heat gun will make it less likely for cracks in the paint.

take the rubber piece inside the clamps out.






turn them inside out then cut the extra plastic on the inside so i can fit around the pvc piping.



like so.

remember when following these instructions, you dont need to raise the wheel of the ground, just jack the car up so the fender is higher, remember to keep applying heat as you roll the fender.

couldnt do the rear b/c the pvc piping was too thick. The ass end of my car is so slammed that even when the rear is jacked up, there is still not enough clearance between the fender and the wheel.


car is jacked up.








this pic was taken with the wheel off the ground... still no clearance.





failure....




just go out to HDR and get some 1.5inch pvc piping...

good luck guys!

the way i did it is just get a grinder with a grinding wheel and and remove all that metal off then with a 120 grit sanding disk smooth it out came out perfect. another thing that has to be done is remove the mudflap and grind that piece of metal from the fender to the car up to the spot welds or remove it completely and then get it welded this would prevent the car from riding the wheel in hard dips
