DIY: rolling your own fenders.

This is for those who are thinking of rolling their own fenders. I am not responsible if you do anything wrong. This is just a guide.

Fender rolling costs about 100-150 around here which is a rip off for something so simple. I just went to home depot and bought a
$1.50 sch 40 2" PCV pipe.

Saved myself $98.50 for other cool mods

Here is the stock fender.

Click the image to open in full size.

I started by jacking car enough for the PCV pipe to fit between the tire and the fender to bend the lip. I then heated up the fender with a hair dryer until it was warm. I started from the left side and pushed/rolled the pcv pipe towards the middle with the hair dryer following the pipe. I did the same starting from the right. Don't try to bend the lip with just one pass. I did serveral passes to make sure the paint didn't crack

Click the image to open in full size.

Keep it at an angle and roll like seen below to bent the lip even more.

Click the image to open in full size.


done!

Click the image to open in full size.

looks good?

Click the image to open in full size.

It's easier with two people.. one person holding the dryer and the other angling, pushing and rolling the pcv pipe. It was quite hard holding the dryer and rolling at the same time.


goodluck It was my first time rolling a fender too haha

you would probably have to use something that won't bend. (i.e. baseball bat) the pcv pipe was bending from the heat and the amount of force being pushed against the pipe. You could probably use a solid wooden cylinder.



as for returning... i'm sure you can't return something that look like this.....
hahah

Correct it makes the paint more elastic which makes it less susceptible to chipping. A wooden baseball bat may work a lil easier.
