Disadvantages of Fender Rolling ?
 
What are the disadvantages of rolling the fenders. I have heard that after rolling the fenders, their are more prone to rust. If thats the case, what are some things you can do to prevent this.

Any help would be appreciated.


Thanks

ive heard of this as well and i ve heard of people cakeing on vaseline not sure if this is true but it sounds like it would work

if done properly fender rolling has no ill effects. Do it too fast and you may crack the paint, which can let corrosion in. But if you saw you cracked the paint, why wouldn't you hit with some undercoating/repair the damaged area?

No matter what; you are squeezing two metal surfaces together. you won't make a perfect seal so rust can potentially develop.(Grin) Vaseline may work because it is a petroleum by product.

How about not driving it in the rain or winter. :-)

Clean the inside very well before rolling and afterwards seal the gap properly and you won't face any problems.

the lip is a structural part of the fender so you're weakening it also. It's not like they just got bored one day and decided to put a lip there.

That said, I rolled my fenders and would do it again if needed.

We can do it as long as you fenders/paint is original.

The PO did roll the fenders and yes it started to rust... the underbody is in better condition than the fenders are, because it was rolled... i talked to the body shop and he told me, he told me that the only thing he could do is to cut it out n make it with fibreglass... so becareful... also the PO never maintained the car so well.

iverson03tj 10-01-2010 12:26 PM

is there a way to put some kind of stuffing between the metal to create a seal... like a rubber ribbon or something..

Depends if you're looking for a quick respray or a color change.

But for a good job, 3-4k maybe?
