The rubberized paint sealant is black (for the black G's hehe)

If it's visible, you can also seal it, then sand it down and touch it up with some color matched paint! I'm so addicted to this 3M stuff right now haha

i think you have to do it many times while just adjusting the angle little by little each time to get the fender folded. when you try to roll it too much it doesn't come out right.

foreign, you roll your fender until it slowly folds in. You're supposed to make several passes. It actually easier with a metal pipe wrapped in several layers of tape.. or you could tape the fender itself with several layers.

spooze- imagine your car sitting out in 100 degree weather. The surface gets pretty damn hot, hot enough to not be able to leave your hand on. Hotter than my hair dryer could get it for sure.

one more thing. people say that rolling fenders will make them weak and warp the fenders. is that true?

I've heard it can make weaker too, but no warping happened on mine.
It's better than cutting the inner fender lip imo that I've heard ppl do instead of rolling.

Cutting the fender can make it weaker, rolling the fender doesn't noticeably weaken the fender at all. You aren't removing anything, just bending it.

if you don't have metal pipe hanging around or don't want to buy it, use a D cell MagLight!

Just finished rolling my rear fenders. Haven't driven it yet so I'm not sure if it'll still rub (stock suspension w/ 285 tires in the rear). I'm not sure how some of you got the clearance you did, mine only folded about 3/4 of the way. I also encountered paint chipping. I used a metal bar wrapped in some duct tape, but the fender cut right through the tape (which in turn caused some of the paint to chip with metal/metal contact), so i switched to masking tape and it worked a lot better. Hopefully I don't have any rubbing issues now and after i put on some coils.
