Looking to roll my fenders...

But I have NO idea who/where can roll e46 fenders without complaining or having it be expensive for some reason.
I'm located in Shoreline (20 min north of DT Seattle) but I am mobile.

Anyone have suggestions?

*I'll be dropping the car on ST coils with 8.5 et30 up front and 9.5 et37 out back.
225/245 tires.

I go to a shop here in San Diego that charges $80 an axel. I doubt you'd come all the way out here. Was just giving you an idea of prices.

I cut my rears a to fit 19x10 et38 no problem a few years ago. I had rolled them before, but not much came of it. I then took an angle grind with a cutting blade and carefully came at them. With some patience and painters/duct tape for protection on the outer side of the quarter panel, everything came out perfect. Rubbing was eliminated completely. It'll smell badly and smoke a lot from what I can remember, but don't worry, it's just mass amount of the glue that is under there being burned off. Will post pics on Friday if your interested

Friend has a fender roller if you want to attempt it yourself it is pretty easy. You just need a blow dryer or heat gun.

How much extra room does fender rolling create?

I've got the tool & can roll them if you ever make your way south to oregon. Fender roll can give you up too 1/4 inch (+/-) helped me stuff some super sweet shoes on a lot of my cars over the years.

i shaved mine about a month and a half back, pretty easy really. i've got a grinder and a dremel if you want to try it yourself. i'd be down to help if you want some assistance as well.

^ I won't trust myself haha. I have zero experience with fender work.
Did everything come out clean? Did you have to paint at all or no?
I'll obviously consider paying you if you believe you can do a really nice job.

Pretty simple. Unroll your fenders if already rolled. Then mask and trace where you want to cut. Then slowly cut along your line. Don't go too fast or too deep (that's what she said) with the cutting wheel and you'll be fine. Clean up the edge with a dremel, then 200 grit. You can fill or paint if you like afterwards. I can show you how it turned out. You ever go to rtc on Saturdays?
