Fender rolling

Does anyone have a fender roller they are willing to part with or rent out? I would also be willing to pay someone to do it if possible. I had a quote for $150 to do all 4 but I thought that was kinda steep. I have a set of Tenkai lowering springs if anyone is willing to exchange services for the springs please let me know. Thank you in advance

why not buy one yourself, i think the eastwood roller is around $300, then just rent it out to earn back the $$.....rollings not hard, just take your time and work slow, get a heat gun and keep the paint warm...

The only way to do this correctly is with the Eastwood tool. Do a net search and it will bring up possibilities in you area, from car clubs to individuals who rent out thier tools. You'll have to put up a deposit ( usually the value of the tool) and the charge for using the tool. You'll see other ways of doing this, but this is the best way. Don't expect a lot of difference though it might help if your car is only rubbing a bit.

I've never used a roller.... I've always rolled my fenders with a 2x4........

Just look at some of my old Orange Beast pics, did all 4 fenders with a piece of wood.

Where at?? $150 for all four is damn cheap I think. I expected way more than that.

I used my jack handle with the car sitting on the ground just used the tire as a leverage. Then I used a rubber mallet for fine tuning with the wheel off. I still need some extra room in the rear.
