    I love my eastwood. I have never used another one so my opinion is useless.

    I finally got around to using the Eurospec roller I picked up in august. It's a solid tool, but I had to modify the crap out of it to make it work as it seems they sent me one for every bolt pattern but 5x120. Aside from the pattern, I also had to remove the actual roller and grind down the edge on the pivoting arm to make it rotate to the angle I needed. Because of all the modification, I was only able to get my front fenders done.

    After all of that, it worked great, but I would spend the extra $100 on an Eastwood if I were to do it again.

    if looking to get a fender roller i recommend the parts shop max fender roller

    check my review out comparing it to the eastwood

    if you end up purchasing it ask for the blue harder wheel

    I have the eastwood, love it. I have rolled over 100 cars and it's still holding up. the only thing i had to replace was the bolt that adjusts the wheel.

    Things that i wish they changed:
    -I wish it was BBK friendly(i use a spacer/washers which is a pita)
    -I wish it could adjust a few more inches lower(some cars have very small fender wells)

    other than that its a great tool!!

    PS always use a heatgun!

    old school bat than i use the magazine roll to smooth it out. As long as you can control the decent of jack slowly you wont have any issues and its $300 cheaper.

    powered by max one is the best for lowered cars IMO.

    I couldn't get the right angle with eastwood one cuz the arm was too long for the distance from my hub to the fender. With PBM fender roller you can flip the arm and start from bottom of the hub instead of the top

    Any opinions on the Eastwood Fender Finisher? My Miatas hub to fender height (on the ground) is about 10" and no roller will fit, so I'm thinking this is a better option.

    Just my .02... Heat gun and a baseball bat, (and sometimes a hammer if needed) has always worked for me! So if money is an issue, this is usually free. Even better if you have touch up paint laying around, but with the heat gun I didn't need it at all. Good luck! Post before/after pics when you've got your results.

    Me and my friend rolled his 300zx fenders with a metal pole wrapped in duct tape without a heat gun and it came out nice. Kinda ghetto but it worked well enough.

    It'll crack.

    When i did mine I didnt use heat. To this day one sides good but by the next day after changes in temperature one side flaked. I got aluminum fenders so I just wet sanded it down where it cracked and it blended in with my silver paint. It was only on the underside of the fender and the edge of the arch but I taped off the rest and shot it with clear coat. Simple.

    if you have access to a welder and some other simple metalworking tools you can make one.







    I made this one with about $30 worth of metal and four hours of my time

    You should start making them and sell them. I'd buy one if it was cheaper than the rest haha
