    I need to roll up or trim my rear quarter well lip. I've seen the tool from eastwood, but was wondering if there was a less expensive way to do a clean job

    really! what is the technique? Did you heat the surface to prevent paint cracking?

    But don't use one signed by Babe Ruth. ;)

    Yep, use a bat. Just put it between tire and lip then roll.

    Swerven could have told you that, but he's probably trying to swim out all the rain they've had in the past couple days... :)

    Let me clarify: When you say roll, you mean roll the car? Which would in turn roll the bat and flatten the lip? I'm going to be looking into this too, figured now would be the ideal time while the thing is getting restored and then when paint is on and I want to do it later it won't be an issue.
