Default Anyone Interested in Rolling Their Fenders?

This is a just a feeler. I bought an eastwood fender roller which is being shipped here as I write this.

Just curious how much people would like to rent this equipment.

1. $40 to rent.
2. You pay for actual shipping to and from me.
3. Deposit of $250, which will be returned to you less the cost of shipping to you.
4. Max time to hold the equipment is 2 weeks, therefore I should have it within 1 month after i have sent it out. 1 week to ship to you, 2 weeks for you to do your fenders, 1 week to ship back to me. This gives other people the chance to roll their fenders.
5. Everything will be done through paypal.

If you are interested, PM me I can put you on a waiting list. Turn around time will be approx. 3-4 weeks.



Thanks

Is there a link to this offer? I might be willing to give that a go.

Just call them and put your name on the waiting list. I've done it before. I've also rolled fenders in a BMW out in a hot parking lot with a baseball bat. Both ways worked, without cracking paint.

I was looking for a way to flare my fenders out, not to just tuck in the lip. I couldn't get the fender to flare with a baseball bat. Could've used a small sledge hammer like someone on this forum did, but didn't want to risk messing it up and having a larger cost for a body shop to fix my mistakes. Hence the purchase of the eastwood fender roller.

I just found out that i could rent one from tire rack for the cost of shipping. Wished i found that out before purchasing the roller,but the waiting list is kinda long.

Since i wanna drive my miata with my sportmax 002 rims, i guess this is the only way to go cause i don't wanna cut up my miata's body to install fender flares.

So far, i've been rubbing the tires a lot.

Well, if anyone wants to rent this one for the cost of shipping. Let me know cause i've just decided to keep it. Don't really feel like waiting to drive my miata.
