Rent a roller and heat gun, it's not hard to roll the rear fenders.

A friend of mine knows someone who'd rent his roller out for about $75 for a weekend. If you plan it out, we can get a few ppl to go in together and get 'em all done in 1 weekend.

^^ that's what the heat gun is for. The pros use it to "soften" the paint... and make it much less likely to crack.

I'm down... my paint is already cracked are chipped off the fender lip do to poor rolling attempts before. I'd like to just get them squared away.

Rent the roller, it's the right way to do it. We did 2 cars over a weekend. I just used a blow dryer, no paint cracked on either one.

I just got more info.... This guy is located locally and will let you rent the tool AND heatgun for $50 (5 days)... w/a $300 deposit. He belongs to a local Subaru club and their members have been sharing the rental cost and doing multiple cars in 1 day. If we're lucky, I can probably even find one of the guys that's done it a few times and see what he'd do it for, if we set up a few cars to have done.

At least for me, I may do this on both the MKIII and MKIV... worth the $50 I'm sure. he says it should only take a couple of hours per car... Anyways, here ya go. More reason to get a few of us together for a BBQ or sumthin'.

Here's the some info from the rental info page...

I can meet you in Irving or Las Colinas area during lunch time and Valley Ranch or Addison after business hour. For examples:

Lunch: I-35E & MockingBird Ln. or Hwy 183 & Beltline Rd.

After Business Hour/Weekend: Dallas North Tollway & Beltline Rd (Addison, TX) or MacArthur Blvd & I-635.

did they explain why their price to roll the fenders was so rediculous?
