Pics of to be rolled fender ???
OK, I took some pictures of the fender lip and was wondering if this would be the correct wat to go about it. As you see the fender is round ,duh. I just can't understand how a round fender lip us going to be rolled square up without deforming the outer lip.... The problem is I hear some guys are just cutting off what they don't need, BUT if that is done your cutting off all the welds that hold the inner fender well to the outer! I was thinking of making a bunch of 1/2" cuts around a 1" apart then use the rolling tool to flip the lip up. I still would have some attachment points. I have the chrome molding that goes over the lip when I'm done to cover up any mistakes. As you see in the pictures I already pre-drilled the mounting holes closer to the lip so when the molding goes back on and I trim it I can re-attach it without any trouble. I then can scribe from the inside of the well to cut the molding the size of whats left of the mounting point.
Do you think I'm going about this correctly? I'm not doing it for a couple of days so any suggestions are welcomed!
I know I need a new tape measure!
