Fender lip roller??

OK... I'm not even sure if I called that the right name in the title. Anyway, I have one fender lip that I bent over to get it out of the way of the tire. Admittedly I didn't do a real good job on that side (compared to the rest of the car) and I still have to do the other side.

My question is what tool do I need to roll the fender lip? What is it's name and what does it look like? If you could post a pic that would be great.

I wandered around Harbor Freight yesterday and I could not find what I needed to do the job. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Oh crap Rob... That is going to require some actual skill. I'm screwed!!

But seriously that sounds good. The only thing I was I was missing from my last attempt was the dolly's. I thought there was some sort of tool to do this but I guess not other than a B.F.H.

So will a Barbie do or are we taking Cabbage Patch?

Lolololololol.
Personally I prefer the Cabbage Patch versions myself for these particular radii.
It just takes time and patience Chris......and keep in mind that every time you strike a blow on metal you are thinning it and that now extra material has to go some where.
If you want a flat surface, use a flat shaping tool. If you want a curved surface, use a curved shaping tool.
There is a method called 'hammering off' (Ok....focus now lol) where you only strike the metal and the dolly isn't actually under the hammer blow. That goes a long way toward bending the material and not making it thinner.
Go slowly and move small amounts of material over a large distance and you will get a feel for what the metal wants.

There is a tool.

Hey thanks. I appreciate you posting that. I'm considering getting it just because it looks intriguing. Well that and I've whacked my fingers with hammers before! Thats no fun at all.

Im no panel beater but the best way is to put a metal rod inside the fender lip and use a hammer. Gently tap the lip around the rod, this will make it flat lip and strengthen the fender at the same time.

Cheers Bob.

If you use the lip roller on a good painted finish, be sure to warm the area with a hair dryer or heat gun on low so the paint won't crack.

Eastwood has a roller that a lot of people use, great tip about heating the paint. Good luck.
