Fender Rolling
 
How do you roll your fenders?

Is it a DIY?

If not how much does it cost and are there negative effects?

Thanks :thumbsup:

you would need special equipment to do it the right way and you have to know what you are doing so you dont screw up your paint, have it done by a proffessional it is not extremely expensive

$35 a fender? Not bad at all! Do you only need to do the back most of the time? Say if you wanted to fit oem m3 rims?

I think with extreme fender roll, you would still be rubbing with OEM m3 wheels. The rear wheels have such a low offset. I think fender rolling wouldnt even help. You need to run 4 front wheels if you wanted to go the OEM route.

Do a search, there was a guy here a while ago that rented the tool out. I think it was $50 bucks and he included a heat gun to heat the paint so it didn't crack. I rented it from him and did it myself. Search my posts if you want and I put something about him in the seller feedback forum.

Take your finger and feel under your rear fender. The piece of metal that sticks straight towards your car gets flattened up towards the roof instead. I'll see if I can get a good pic...

just be careful who you do it with, some people use machines and still mess it up....I had a guy shave and hammer the **** to perfection and he did an awsome job for like 60 bucks a side and he took his time...it was my second attempt so he had to deal with a previous job that wasnt that great and still he pulled it off nicely!

I needed mine as far back as possible as i have 19x10 rears so Im right at the edge of the well...


BTW M3 offset is waaayy to intense even with fender roll, youll have to maybe pull the fenders for that one, but no clue on that....

take a bat... stick between the inside of the fender and the tires then roll it inch by inch until the inner part of the fender and the out part of the fender becomes parallel... If ur rear tires are too low and close to the fender, use a jack and jack up the rear until the bat goes between it.

That may work on your civic, but the BMW's are more solid than that.

Besides, what a ghetto way to do it...
