there are fender rollers on ebay and some places that lend them out seem to be good I've not used one but was thinking about getting one, not sure if it distorts the wheel arch though, makes it wavy or anything but they seem to be very popular in a lot of the drift clubs but then they don't really care too much for body work only having the highest offset and widths :lol:

there are two ways of doing it.
do you care about your body work?
if yes choose option 1
if no choose option 2



1. use an arch roller and a heat gun.
clean the inner edge of the arch and maybe spray some anti corrosion stuff onto it, warm the arch until its almost too hot to touch but dont overdo it as the paint can burn and will discolour. gently and slowly fold the lip that pokes into the wheel arch until it is flush against the outer skin this can take many many hours if you are a perfectionist.
if the paint on the edge of the arch lip cracks touch it up with the correct colour paint so there is no bare metal.
stand back and admire........... then decide to use option 2 on the other side as option 1 took all day.

option 2
big hammer or mallet.
using chosen weapon smack the lip of the arch until its out of the way.
repeat if necessary.


i have used both options on various cars and i must say the altezza rear arches are bloody tough so i usually start with option 1, switch to option 2 for the inner edge of the arch that will not be seen then go back to option 1 to finish it off.

I have one I bought with a couple of mates, easy enough to do just be warned that if there is filler or anything in you're arches it will all pop out. There are different ways of doing it, plenty of guides online.

I used a hammer on my old car as someone put way too big wheels on but after I did it the arch lip was all distorted and wavy and where it was flat just above the wheel well that was slightly distorted as well
I say pay someone professional to do it and if they f*** it up then they will have to sort it out

Another way is to use a wooden baseball bat. Means you dont even have to take the wheel off :)
