anyone know where or how i can get my fenders rolled out a little??
I would ask a body shop near you if they have the ability to do the fender rolling. Do you know of any import shops that do body work in your area? They might be able to point you in the right direction.
This may be frowned on but a louisville slugger and a heat gun are your friend!
i will have to look up some body shops when i get home. haha a louisville slugger!!! i dono about that...i want it done right athough that would save money eh? haha thanks guys
no you can really use a bat. i have done this on my civic you take the bat a friend then put the bat at the right thickness and SLOWLY pull the car foward all four wheels till done. but understand this is just to fold the lips up so they don't rub tires i would not use it to really make the outside fender roll.
You need to use a heat gun to reduce chance of cracking the paint. Go slow.
You can rent rollers for some Internet entrepreneurs.
If you are in DFW I know where u can get one.
I've seen some horror photos on Bimmerforums.com, though. So please, don't do it if you aren't completely confident.. you'll end up with cracked paint or an uneven fender.
Yeah i still havent gotten it done but i think i will just have someone do it just to be on the safe side!

Youthful zeal. (Wow, that came out almost nice.)
Take your time, use a fair amount of heat and DIY.
Go to m3forum.net and contact thedood. He rents his fender rolling tool.
Also check with your local CCA chapter. We have loaner tools in the Windy City chapter that can be loaned out.
SLow and easy with the heat and it is very easy. Also very easy to crack the paint if you don't go slow and easy with the heat. A hair dryer works as well, just a lot slower.
Thanks for the information. I will remember that.
