I'm wrong with it. I don't want to put it back together aka lazy.

interior is all apart, radiator is out (easy.. I know )

no inspection either and I dont want to pay to tow. I can just wait.

Do you know if those ebay kits are any good? It's crossed my mind before.

****, if we all put our money together we could buy one, do it ourselves and then resell it, jk.

Yep, he uses an eastwood. I think I might get one, after doing 4 fenders myself, I'll have half the $$, hmm. I might do that if I don't get this gunk out in time.

Cool, if I get it I'll hold you up to that, lol. I don't see it being to difficult, let me read up on some DIY's for it though. I might do the junkyard thing too.

The eastwood tool is easy to use, it doesn't take much practice, just go at it real slow on the first fender you roll. I knew guys in atlanta that rolled fenders using baseball bats, they actually did a pretty nice job but that actually takes skill. ha.

you can try the newspaper technique

get a **** ton of newspaper... i mean A **** TON.. as in stack on stack on stacks... about a couple feet in news papers

raised your car either front/back
*this will only work if you have some some sort of stretch/poke already

layer a crap ton of newspaper over each tire.. maybe a couple inches worth of thickness

lower car SLOWLY.. wala.. rolled in fenders..

Also can be done with phone books.

You can also use a baseball bat.

Go to a Mercedes forum and you'll quickly realize why I'm here.
