Thanks. Again I know what needs to be done. Custom tanks. But paying someone else to do that isn't going to be cheap. I can think of lots of better things to put money into for my car.

do any of you guys have access to a fender roller / heat gun, that would be willing to let me borrow it for a bit, or will take $ to assist in fender rolling?

whenever really. Preferably soon as I start my new job on 2/2, and won't have much free time after then. Where is Gerald located? Out by you?

If so, It's looking like I'll be out in livermore tomorrow as well as monday, so i would be able to drive that extra distance if you guys are free either of those days. It would save me a metric shit ton in time to not have to drive all the way to Fresno and back.

When you roll the fenders, does it change the contour of the outer sheet metal at all? If not, I'd like to try to come up and join the fender roll party.

yes it definitely will change the outer sheet metal of the fender.

fender rolling party sounds like a freakin awesome idea. Hopefully we can make this happen on short notice lol.

yeah definitely NOT looking to use a bat/hammer/other device not a fender roller. My fenders are rolled right now, but I want to roll them more since I got new wheels.

Hey guys, Anyone know the best way to remove a stripped (rounded head) hex bolt? I've got a 5/8" hex bolt that is now a 5/8" round bolt that wont budge even with vice grips. The vice grips dig in but then work their way out. Talked to a machine shop and they said $45 bucks to weld a nut to it and wrench it out that way.
