    Fender rolling is pretty easy if you take your time and apply some.giid thorough heat.

    I have a fender roller I rent out occasionally if anyone wants to try their hand at it

    Fender roller on Kijiji for $80.
    Offer $40 and get it.

    I'll post pics of my rolling soon. I'm a special case with side skirts molded to the car flush. So I have a bit more work to blend it in the wheel well area.

    Bump: Can you put bigger wheels after the fender roll? I'm running 245/40/18 right now and it's rubbing like crazy. I was thinking of putting 265/40/18

    Depends where it rubs and the offset of the wheels, etc.
    Your question is vague and 245's already rub.

    Borrowed a buddy's who works at a shop. I doubt he rents it but as for results, worked perfectly on 15 yr old paint. Just had to be patient and take my time. Small moves and keep paint warm.no cracks.

    You should be good if you apply heat and as you said go slowly. Also, when you finish I would recommend applying a sealer so water can't get behind the rolled lip and sit there forever.
    Bad idea. You'll never get it totally sealed. Leave it open so that any water that DOES get up there will be able to run down, and it will dry itself out in an hour or so.

    I never sealed it. Probably 1/4" air gap, no way would I get sealer in there good enough.
    Also car barely sees sun let alone rain.
