Getting Molly’s Fenders Rolled

A couple of weeks ago I notice my tires were rubbing the sidewall of the tire against the inner fender well. So, I decided to put some small wheel spacers on to prevent the rubbing and would quickly realize that the outside was now rubbing. I was driving down Kroger drive and I hit a dip in the road a little too fast. The dip was deep enough to compress the monster truck-like suspension and gouge the tires outer side wall. I wasn’t sure what had happened until the length of rubber sliced out of the sidewall of the tire started whipping around wildly hitting the rear quarter panel and eventually slung out into the other lane hitting another car. I pulled over and surveyed the damage. I was going to need to roll my fenders and soon, or I could face a blowout.

I parked Molly for a couple of weeks until I could find a fender roller for sale or one I could borrow. I poked around on facebook and posted on the North Texas Foxbody Club page. Several people offered up the use of their fender rollers but were too far away. Doug offered up his services and I decided to head out to Carrolton and get the fenders rolled.
