Nice flare job.

Were you by chance at a gas station this morning in Edison/Woodbridge?

Just got my fenders rolled, but the guy who did it rushed the work and left it half assed. He notched the fenders instead of using the actual fender roller. So now my rear fenders have cracked paint and waves in them. Taking it to a friend to have it fixed and done the right way.

Ha, it's a Shi... I mean Chevy.

The Ralliart though... I've never been so excited to get into a car and drive to and from work before until I got it. Just a super fun car to drive, you know?

That's my biggest fear with fender rolling... that it's not done right and causes all sorts of paint issues. Is it possible to apply the same black tar-like material that's used when replacing windshields round the inner fender and where the bends are made? Or is there another material you can use to help prevent peeling and rust?

Oh, I know.

I was kind of hoping to get the new focus. Just to see what their "dual clutch" feels like.

^ My buddy said he was going to put some type of material on the inner fender to help reinforce it and prevent rust + cracking like you mentioned. Not sure as to what the actual material is called, but I'll ask him and find out.
