How does one roll the rear fenders in a 92 300e?
 
Hey everyone! Well, I didn't have a baseball bat, but I did have this rubberized handel to a bottle jack lieing around, so with that and a hair dryer, I had at it with the front fenders. No problems, they look almost identical to before, except the edge is now perpendicular with the ground. The front tires don't rub there anymore, but the rear tires are still rubbing the fender. Now, I couldn't quite figure out how to roll the rear fenders as the lip is parallel to the ground, so sticking anything there and trying to pry away from the car isn't going to do anything. Anyone have any tips on rolling the rear fenders? Thanks!

Here's the thread by subman on fender rolling:

One thing to remember to do before attempting to roll the fenders using any method is ti clean all the road dirt and grime away from the insde of the lip. If the dirt is left there you will get uneven results. A fellow I used to work with learned this the hard way while using the same tool pictured in above post.
