Car should be lowered soon, and I'm looking into rolling the bits just inside the arches that stick out. Ideally, I want it done without having to get the arches resprayed. I know it's possible.

See here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXjL2G_QpjQ&feature=player_embedded

To be honest, I don't have the balls to attempt what's being done in the video Laughing . Is it something a body shop would be able to do? Or would they more than likely tell me that the arches would need a respray after it's been done?

the paint needs to be heated to make the paint flexable, just be careful not to burn the paint

Where abouts is your work Luke? Can you ask them for me to see if they'd be able to do it? Something is better than nothing.

I want to get my front end resprayed at some point anyway, possibly in the winter or next year, so a proper job could be done then if needed. I just don't want cracked paint due to the fact I can't be sure when I'll get round to getting everything sprayed.

Thanks for letting me know! Very Happy . It's never had filler and has never been painted (as far as I know anyway!)

To be honest, I don't have funnds to get paint now as I've spent on coilies, wheels & tyres, adjustable rear tie arms, sump guard and new brake pads all round. I just need the arches rolling before I get the coilovers on, that's the problem.

Are you far from 'Good Motoring' on the industrial estate?
