If you'll search we just had a topic very similiar about 2 weeks or so ago covering how to do it.

Question though for those of you that have. How did the front passengerside go? I ask because there is that corner formed into the wheel well. If you have rolled your front fenders please let me know how that went and whether the structural welds in the area of that corner have held up.

Yeah we used to do the baseball bat thing on our trucks. Kind of dangerous though. You basically put the bat in tight and roll up over it. It is the ghetto way and I would never do it on my BMW
