Did they use a heat gun to soften the paint?

does the machine just push the inside molding against the fender or does it bend the fender out... either way, its cool to see how they do that..

Everywhere(everytime) I read about fender rolling, it was advised to preheat(soften) the paint just for that only reason alone, so that the paint wouldn't crack. I hope they didn't chip the paint too much.

I asked them that question. He said there was no need to use it. I was there the whole time he did it.

I was serious about rolling fenders with a baseball bat... i know of 4 people that have already done it with no problems... If you think about it, it involves the same physics...
