How guard rolling works
Guard or fender rolling consists of folding the inner lip of the wheel arch into a tighter ‘V’ shape or a ‘U’ shape to increase the space between the arch and the tyre.
The spot-welded double metal lip of the rear guards or the single-skinned lip of the front wheel arch can be pressed all the way around the inner side of the arch by using a rolling machine that bolts onto the wheel hub.
The guard rolling technique varies with each car. Success depends on the condition of the paintwork or previous repairs to the area. If the paint is original, there is usually no cracking or paint damage.

Disclaimer SEDUCTIVE AUTO does not guarantee that after rolling guards on any vehicle the paintwork will not be damaged in any way. In all cases, any risk will be identified to the client prior to the work commencing. SEDUCTIVE AUTO does not guarantee that any rippling of the metal (including distortion, denting, misshaping of the area rolled) will not occur. However, every effort will be made to identify this possibility prior to work commencing and measures will be taken to prevent this. The outcome of rolling can vary if: • the car is over 10 years old • the arch has been repaired • it has body filler under the paintwork around the wheel arch • the car has been modified in any way • there are holes drilled around the wheel arch.
