Default Fender roller in Houston area?

I'm looking for someone (or a shop) in the Houston area to roll the fenders on my camaro. Not looking to rent a fender roller tool because I have zero experience with one. Need to find someone that knows what they're doing. Pm or post on here with price.

Thanks,
Kody-

just grind it. dont got to worry bout paint cracking. ripples in the panel or anything. your not really taking away from the support either. and only takes a couple mins. and free if you got a grinder.

I've beat the fender in and grinded it as much as possible but with the taller tire that I'm running now (295-45-17 et street) and the qa1's I can't lower my car as low as I want due to the inside of the tire rubbing. I'm trying to stiffen up the rear suspension and get it set up for the track. Also, anyone do suspension tuning in the Houston area?

if you just need the lip rolled you can do it old school by putting a wooden bat between the fender and tire and rolling it at an angle to bend the metal back. I think I have a bat if you wanna try it. Did you mean the tire rubbing the inside or the inside of the tire rubbing? If you meant the inside of the tire rubbing then you need to pull the wheels and beat some clearance into the fender wells.

Id like to thank DopefedZ for rolling my fenders. He did a great job and knocked it out quick. If anybody needs this done I'd highly recommend going to him. Really appreciate it man!

Had Carlos -DopeFedZ- do my fenders this weekend. Very happy with the results, very professional, and at a good price. Thanks again man!

Anyone looking to get this done, shoot him a pm.

I want to roll the fenders on my BMW E36. Where in Houston are you located at? Also how much more or less would you charge for all four fenders being rolled?
