Rolling fender lips with Eastwood tools
Adding 1-inch narrowed tubular control arms to the '82 Caprice front suspension in my '46 roadster pickup allowed the tires to clear the fenders on full steering lock, but the addition of wider tires meant the problem returned recently. The solution? Rolling the fender lips to gain a little extra clearance. Eastwood offers a tool for just such an application, which was put to good use on the truck.
It can even be used to roll lips on painted fenders if you apply a little judicious heat using an electric heat gun to soften the paint so it doesn't split when force is applied using the tool. Simply bolt the tool to your hub, adjust to suit the vehicle, and roll it around the fender lip a few times, increasing pressure on each pass to roll the return lip of the fender up and towards the outer fender.
