I went out and felt my fender up. This is pretty thin steel. I could see rolling it could cause that lower section to draw inward toward the center. This probably happened because of how it bolts to the car. For instance, the back has much more mass that would have to draw inward, so it really isn't noticeable. Does that make any sense?

Re: fender issues

yea but you'll be back in the same boat of needing it rolled....although it sounds like the roller doesn't know how to heat a fender right as he rolls...of course accidents happen

well the thing i found out( all late but i had no choice) was that the problem was my left lower control arm aint so good. thats why my tire was so close to the fender causing it to scrape. so i had no choice but to roll it. but if buying a new fender will fix my problem, im gona buy a new control arm 1st then buy a new fender.
