so, apparently i live in the mazda6 fender rolling capitol, silver spring md, but am about a year late on buying my car.



ive called around and am having trouble finding someone who will roll them for me so if anyone has advice i would appreciate it.



i called redshift in virginia, but apparently they dont roll anymore, they want to cut the inside lip off with a sawzall or plasma...eek.



any help is appreciated as my new wheels will be here soon and i'd love to be able to test fit them sometime this month.



Thanks!

Check out this thread. You can do a professional job of fender rolling with just an old baseball bat. It is not rocket science and you don't need to pay big money.

On a similar note: Did anyone see Grassroots Motorsports Magazine this month? They had a shop "roll" the fenders on one of their project cars and the pictures showed that the "shop" used a rolled up newspaper wrapped in duct tape and hit it with a hammer.<!>

Holy CRAP!

They (GRM) said the edges needed to be painted afterwards as the paint cracked. (Doh!)

Don't do it like GRM...

Use the baseball bat like a rolling pin heating the crease with a hair dryer as you go. Do a little at a time and you will end up with an excellent looking job.

Don't have a baseball bat? Get one at one of those used sporting goods stores (Play it Again Sports) and remember: you want a wooden bat.:)

For the cheap, a heat gun and a wood baseball bat.
