Rolling the Fender Lip

Last Updated: 05/29/97

by: Tuan

Thanks to everyone for giving me advice on how to roll the fender lip of my car. I must admit, I thought you guys were just joking about using a baseball bat. I had the image of me swinging at my car's fenders!

Here are pictures and steps of how I was able to roll the fenders a little bit on my Integra. This was adequate enough to prevent the rear fender lip from touching my extra wide autocross wheels/tires setup.

1. Peel off the rubber fender lip protector as shown.

Here's another shot of what the fender lip looks like.

2. Place Mr. Louisville as such. It will be easier to start towards the sides and then twist the Slugger upwards until it's at the top.

3. Though this pic shows the bat angled down, I would recommend pushing the bat gently upwards to get the fender lip bending initially.

4. After the lips bend up enough, you can start pushing down to really start trying to get that lip tucked back up.

You should also angle the bat forwards like this to get that lip to gently bend up.

5. Here you can see the fender lip already starting to yield to my awesome telekinetic skills and bat power.

6. Place the rubber strip back and voila! It's done....for now, and you really can't even tell.
