      Does anyone have the specs and/or step by step on how to make a fender rolling tool? I have a lot of steel and would like to make one

      they invented these two things already...called a hammer and a block of wood. use a heat gun and do work. if you're on air do the ole rolling pipe or baseball bat.

      good luck

      ive seen the hammer and block of wood technique as well as the phone book and bat/piece of pipe the only problem with those is there a higher chance of screwing things up and with my luck id screw it up. I'm hoping with a roller it might actually work some what smoothly

      For the time and effort to make a bootleg rolling tool you should probbably just rent one. Also watch those metal tabs stamped into the front fenders that hold the liner in....do not try to roll through those...you will visibly kink the metal on the outside of the fender...ask me how I know, LOL!! Good luck dude!!

      Thanks for the heads up! and the problem with renting is i'm from western NY and there are no dubs! If you have wheels and a few stickers on ur dub ur heavily modded! lol the closest you get to anything as far as cars are a civic with a pep boys fart can on it. no one has even heard of fender rolling! I've seen a few rent adds on ebay and maximum days you have to rent is 5 days including shipping time not to mention the 200 upfront plus 60 rental and 20 dollar a day late fee. You get the 200 back as a deposit but for the money itd cost me i think id rather have some fun make one! but if you come across a cheaper rental i might just rent one to use as a template. Thanks again!
