Default Fender rolling, I've got a guy!

Do to recent events i would no longer recommend this person for fender rolling. He rushed a job and did a number on a couple fenders for a local s2000 guy. Creased the fenders, removed wayyy too much fender liner and chipped paint. I have removed him name / contact info from my original posting.

This is very tempting since I am completely against going down to the city areas for this. He is about two hours or so north of me but it may be worth the trip depending on his price. I'm going to shoot him a text and hope we can work something out. Thanks for the link in my thread.

Jake--

What width and offset are you running on the front? I have 225s on OEM AP2 wheels and am lowered on Eibach's. I was under the impression that I did not have to worry about fender contact.

I have the same setup and never had any problems with rubbing, even on track.

all tires are a little different, take our stock rear 225 tires that are actually 245 width. Probably just a matter of the hankook v12evo being a little wider that another brands 225
the offset is most likely different on the rims as well, i belive my rims are 8" front, 9" rear

I have 215 up front and I rub often on +50 in the front but I am pretty low. I can't wait to have this taken care of tomorrow.

I know I don't live in NY but I spend a lot of time there and know quite a few people from the area.

I've known Elliot from a local car forum and met him a few times before. I bought a fender roller but I didn't feel confident rolling my own fenders for my new wheels. I had Elliot roll all four of my fenders and remove/relocate the rear tabs today and he did a perfect job. He spent about 4 hours total so he makes sure its done properly and not rushed through. Looking at the outside of the fender it looks stock, very clean job.

So if you need rear bumper tabs adjusted I'm sure he could accommodate your needs for a little bit extra.
