: Rolled fenders?

Has anyone rolled their fender lips with the Eastwood Fender Roller? Where can I get an adapter for the 6 to 5 lug (just for using the tool)? Any tips for doing it?

I have a big dip in the curb in front of my driveway, and I think I already bent the driver's side front fender a bit. I've only had the car for a week. I thought about grinding the curb down when I had rented a concrete grinder last year, and now I wish I had.

If you cant find an adapter for the roller you can use a wooden bat. Old school yes. But it works. Jack up the car till you can fit the bat then wedge between the fender and tire then push down towards the tire. Itll roll em in. Just take your time and heat up the paint where your rolling with a heat gun. If you don't you will most likely crack the paint. Good luck.

I think Cadzilla or some variation of that user name, modified an east wood fender roller to fit the 6 lug hub. im pretty sure he was renting it out to other V owners. search old fender rolling threads for the thread.

using the east wood is super easy. heat gun is a must. youtube has all the DIY vids you need

I just offset it on the lugs and it worked for me.

Thanks for the replies. I think I might just modify the tool so it will fit.
