Default E30 arches in new AWOL video

Hey All,

I'd love to get a few opinions from people here... Firstly I'd like to point out that normally I am a big advocate of the original/OEM look for cars. I have an E30 and normall I like it to be as simple as possible. However! While watching the latest video on awol.tv I saw an e30 with some pretty cool arches (the gold one, screnshots below). Whats involved in flaring the wheel arches/fenders to achieve that look? Can that be achieved with a normal arch roller or would I have to send it in to a bodyshop to weld on a little extra metal?

Not sure if that's extra material or not. I rolled and pulled mine by hand (E21). I had to use a hammer and dolly because the fenders are double thick and I like doing things the old fashioned way. The body shop then skim coated the shape and painted her up.

Yep that has been added theres no way e30 fenders will roll out that far in the rear,maybe up front they might but will need skimming as well i would think.
