I got them installed a few days ago, the guy installing them had to raise the car (I'm on coilovers) in the rear due to the tires rubbing the fenders. Now I've got an awful fender gap and it still rubs when I go over anything slightly bigger than a quarter...
The fronts clear but I know they rub when I hit a bump too since I have "rubber peal" on the inside of my fender.
So my question is...
Anyone have any suggestions on fender rolling without having to pay a shop to get them rolled?
I've seen TubeYou videos on several different ways: One way (which I might try) is heating up the fender with a heat up while jacked up, then putting magazines or a phone book between the two and having the fender kind of mold with the magazines or phone book when you lower it down. I've seen others use a baseball bat (which looks really unsafe).
Any other ideas or would you suggest I just eat up tires until I save up enough money to get a shop to do it?
Yeah a fender roller and torch is by the best way to roll your fender. It is a shame you aren't close to me, we actually have a roller sitting in our garage. But yeah, take it slow and don't put the flame directly on the paint. Go little by little until they are rolled out.

Haven't ever heard of actually needing to take a torch to it. I would recommend a hi-temp blow dryer, you can pick one up for like 20 bucks from Home Depot. Think that this is just a little more safe for the paint... don't want to scorch / burn it!
