Anyone locally have one or know of a shop that does? At the very least I need to roll the rears, might just use a sledge on the front.

Back when I wanted to roll the fenders on my Miata the Eastwood fender rolling tool was something like $250, so I bought a kids Louisville Slugger wood baseball bat for $15, grabbed my heat gun, and went to work. Ended up working very well, didn't crack the paint at all, and had enough of a roll to fit the wider tires when I had it slammed. The Eastwood tool is down to $120 now, and the knockoff is $60 at Amazon. If I were to do it now, I'd just spring for the $60 for the knockoff tool on Amazon.

The baseball bat was my method on the Civic.  But, I didn't give a rat's patoot about the paint so I didn't bother with the heat gun. 

There is beauty in those cheap cars.

Yeah been there done that with VWs, was hoping for something a bit nicer on this car. I'll have to check out Amazon.

I have a roller.  I know from experience though that a lowered s2000 is incapatable.

Any idea if it will work on a 98-02 Camaro? Bolt pattern is 5x4.75. The car doesn't run right now so I was either hoping to borrow it or once it's back together bring it somewhere.

I have a roller too.  I can bring it at the next OVR autocross event if you're interested.

Cutoff wheel and a jack handle already took care of it, thanks though
