Fender Rollin'

The snow is just starting to fall, tomorrow's lapping day at HPR is a long-shot now. So I'll add a couple of pics of the fender rolling last weekend. I rolled the first side with only the tiniest crack in the paint. I took the same care on the second side and instantly caused a 6" crack.

Most of the focus is on the back half of the arch. This is where the tire is closest to the fender. I scraped all of the body-filler out and rolled the lip almost completely flat.
As you can see, even a large 255 R-Comp fits a full compression on both sides. It took about 2.5 hours. I helped to have two floor jacks when confirming that the tire fits as full compression.
