Re: How to pull fenders?? not roll, pull.. ("00"R)
he means stretching the fender arch away from the body to fit his wheels.
I just rolled and stretched the rear fenders on my 93 hatch. I just used a small hammer and slowly worked the lip up into the inner fendre. Then I just kept hammering the folded lip out and pulled it out about 1/4". I did all this on bare metal while replacing the fenders. The trick to making it look right, is to run your hand over it after every few taps so make sure you are keeping it smooth. I would not try it with paint that you want to keep on the car.

when people try and roll or pull with good paint it is recomended (not by me haha) to warm the panel up with a heat gun to let the paint flex more easily. Just what I have heard but I still wouldn't try it.

I rolled the rears on my 95 civic coupe. did it with a plain hammer using light taps. Luckily I didnt have any problems with the paint!!!
