Fender stretch, shop or DIY

Postby hachi-6 D0ri » Fri Feb 06, 2015 10:00 am

I was wondering if any one had an instructional on how to roll and stretch the factory fenders on an 86. Or if anyone knows of a shop in OC Cali area that does this. Thanks

^^^ that will not achieve the end result that most people with ae86 are after. If OP wants the classic "bubble" flare that most people do, it takes quite a bit of hammering and shaping the metal on both the inside and outside, then a thin layer of filler to smooth out the ripples and, finally, repaint.

A fender roller isnt going to do this.
