how much room does rolling the rear fenders normally get you?

and i know that this was asked before, but can i do it myself?

about how much do you all think it might cost for JUST ONE fender to be rolled?

Rolling youe fenders won't give you tons of room. Basically if something is rubbing now, that isn't putting huge gouges in your tires, rolling your fenders will give you clearance. So I wouldn't think much more than an inch...

Yes you can do it yourself...

The cost would depend upon how good the body shop is. If they are skilled it shouldn't be too bad. But still most likely an hours labor for each fender. So most likely around $400 dollars for all 4 fenders, is what I would expect. However, I have never checked into this, so just call 3 or 4 places and see how much it is. That will give you a good idea of the fair price for your area. If they are not very skilled, they are either not going to gaurantee that they will not break the fender and if they do you're screwed. Or they are going to charge you alot, so in case they break or chip or crack your fender then they could afford to buy you a new fender, or repair that one that they messed up.
