Dirties, I know.






That's actually rubber on my fender that I drew the heart in. I ordered a fender roller last night. and I still need to install my camber arms.

I just got some new wheels and was getting a slight rub (42mm offset). So instead of spending $200+ on a fender roller I just reverse engineered one lol. Been use'n it the past few days and holly crap! It works like a charm! Not too bad for welding up some scrap metal from the shop... Ur car looks good too BTW lol, now you just need some mud flaps.

I actually used a rubber mallet for the fronts and I haven't had a problem there since. I used some steel piping on the rear, and the fenders didn't even budge... I bought the Eastwood fender roller for $120 shipped to my door off eBay. Everyone around here wanted $100-$150 to do them professionally. I figured I may as well buy one, so then I can help out some locals and roll their fenders as well! But that's awesome though! I wish I knew how to weld. and thanks! I'm happy with my car at the moment. I still need new headlights, my ST170's have so many issues with them. Oh and I did have mudflaps at one point. I bought them at FF11. I had them on my car for a year or so, but got tired of having them rub on everything. They were plastic. Sometimes I feel like buying some big fat rubber ones and letting them drag in the street.... kinda feel like they wouldn't last long though. lol What wheels did you get by the way?

Here is a pic I found from fall a couple years ago. It's wide angle, but shows the flaps I had. Not much. lol
