    id like to see some pics of exactly how this is done and exactly what it accomplishes. i know it makes the fender wider or something, but if you used a baseball bat i cant see it comming out very pretty...

    i used the baseball bat method, works very well... just do it slowly so you don't crack your paint :)

    What do you guys reccomend for a heat source to lessen the chance of cracking the paint? Thanks...

    I used the baseball bat method on my old civic ex and a butane torch just make sure you dont leave the heat on it for more than like three seconds at a time and take your time patience is the key and when youre done it will be a very pretty sight. To see your tires tuck up under your wheel wells is hot man and its always feels better when you know you did it

    and dont use a wooden bat

    email me if you have more speciffic questions about the steps

    holly fuck dont use heat you will fuck up the paint and cause air pockets to form wich will allow rust. roll them slow then spray it with a can of under coating
