Fender rolling

I'm wondering if anyone has rolled their mg-b fenders themselves?

A friend of my has a roller and I was wondering what the largest tire is you could get under a rolled fender.

At this point in time I'm trying to avoid adding flares due to time constraints. If worse comes to worse ill rivet on some flares.

Contact Glen Towery. He's been able to use a bottle jack and a shaped piece of oak to spread the width. It's almost unnoticeable.

Another MGB guy you might want to speak to is Steve Carrick. I know he has one of those Eastwood-type fender rollers... You can find Steve's contact info in the "vendor directory" (under the "Contact" tab, above) - he's the new owner of Advance Auto-Wire.
