Sti over fender roll (how to/info)

well i wanted to show how I do the sti over fender rolling/pulling.

work was done at Apollo Performance


warm water
dry towel
fender roller
heat gun
painters tape

These setups take some work but they are doable, in most cases rivets get loose or adhesive gets loose due to the heat gun used

why use a heat gun?

- the over fenders are plastic and sensitive and there is still paint on the inside behind the fender it is important that you monitor your heat not to bubble, melt,or burn the plastic over fender. Heat will make the over fender flexible enough for the polyurethane wheel to ride along it without it cracking


what happens to the over fender?

-rolling the fenders on Sti equiped with over fenders will get the job done. it will give you the clearance needed to fit the bigger wheels. but in almost all cases the heat mixed with the pressure of the roller causes stress on the sdhesive and rivets and the over fenders are left loose.

Are there any other ways of modifying sti's equiped with over fenders to fit bigger wheels?

- yes there are other ways of doing the modding to over fenders. heres a nice write up from the website

exact link

this method requres removal of the over fender, grinding/cutting of the inner lip, using a roller or hammer to pull the fender. adhesive to seal open area.

it seems like alot of work but his results are very good, and the fenders look great.

on to the roll

prepping the fender
clean on the inside and outside of the fender using warm water remove any surface dirt and wipe dry.

I use painters tape to give more suppor to the plastic fender

the inner/actual lip of the fender is very small, thus making it hard to work with.

you must roll the lip out , than bend it up than bend it in.

this is what the lip looks like un touched

rolled out

set up the roller where it is at an angle were you arent resting thoe roller wheel on the plastic over fender

rolled in / flat

once you have completed rolling the fender lip out you can now continue the roll as you would with a regular (typical) fender re adjust the roller to accomidate different parts of the fender and take your time



the pull

In this case thos left side of the fender was already loose prior to the roll?????

I recomend using the silicone adhesive same adhesive used in this right up.

300 zx

so today i fitted a 300zx lovely little Nissan wheel size 18x10 +18 tires ran 265 looked to be a simple fit



little tire munch nothing to be worried about, he did the right thing and got it taken care of.

good job pal.

a gave him a slight pull and all seemed to fit well lowered on coil overs so I had to use my Parts by max/eastwood comb0 worked like a charm as it always does.

Fitting done at Apollo Performance.



un-touched lip


clean coilover setup with helper spring

slight pull full flat inner lip did the job and left plenty o room to spare.
