That looks like the tool I used when I worked for Wheel Warehouse......Just go slow and easy - keep the paint warm so it will flex if not you will chip the paint......

I don't have any pics - but with some time and effort you can roll the lip right into the fender nice and flat - The only thing in the way is the paint.

yep rolled my fenders last night. not hard at all, but I didnt have a heat gun so I was using a hair dryer, and I cracked my paint a little here and there.the cracks are all pretty much on the under side of the fender, you cant see them, plus I put some black silicone sealer over the cracks. hopefuly to prevent further chiping. I managed to roll them pretty flat. no rubbing problems at all. theres a dip by my house that I would have to slow down to 15mph not to rub my tires. last night I hit it at 40mph no problem.

Very Nice - Now where are the Pic's ???? - The other thing you can use on the cracked paint is clear nail polish.

yep I'll get some pics up soon. I dont have a digital camera so I gotta burn up a whole roll of film then I'll get some nice pics put up. actually I think that polish might be the way to go.

hi guys, ive done 3 cars so far and got to do another box soon. My tip is the heat gun is a must. and two people to do the job is best. you have one guy with the heat gun blowing on the inside of the lip, stay away from the outside. keep constant heat, but dont blow the heat too close. and you will have the best results. I did the first one on my car, by myself. I had some cracking. the next two i did, was on friend's cars. they held the heat gun for me. and both of those jobs no cracking.
