you can get fender rollers but they usually only work on cars. otherwise baseball bats work. Just need to sand and repaint like he did. I like the cut edge with the trim you used though Zack

OH, he rolled the fenders not folded them. I have always heard it as rolled anyway. That is tricky to do without messing up the paint. Sometimes it can be done with heat and very slow progress, but usually ends up cracking the paint anyway.
Rolling fenders is normally done on lowered cars with wider wheels to prevent rubbing.
FYI you can normally find places to rent the rollers from. I have never seen one used to roll cut fenders but I suppose it could work the same. Difference is that on a car, they are rolling from the inside so you don't see the area where the paint sometimes cracks.

No I folded them. Used an adjustable wrench, stabs it from behind as you bend it and puts a perfect crease. Work in small very close increments or the metal above the bend ripples. After I had it bent pretty nice, I took a small block of wood and put it behind right in the crease and hit the folded back piece against it with a rubber mallet. Made a perfect 90 degree bend. Had to put a small cut in the part where the indented body line is to get it to bend right and ended up cutting a little too much. Welded it and ground it smooth. Then sanded it as the paint chipped. Then taped it off and paint about 2 inches of flat black. I'll get more pics. Its not perfect but I like it.

Oh, my bad. No reason that shouldn't look decent, if you could keep the paint in fair shape.

Did great all day, out crawled most of the group. Then I went to bump up a really technical 2 ledge crawl with the ledges spaced horribly for my wheelbase and the truck hopped and when it came down BANG! **** C Clips, such a *****. Got a spare shaft in in the rain and wheeled out but it confirmed its time for tons already.
