There is only one guy for the job! His name is Gerard (goldFFronts).

I asked him to roll my rear fenders on my R33 4 door yesterday (March 24, 2012). I originally expect a paint chip, as my car has OEM paint from 1993. Gerard spent 4+ hours rolling and pulling my fenders. Not a single crack/chip on the fenders after all that rolling and pulling. I could not be happier. Why settle for less, when you can have the best?

Car: R33 Sedan

Wheels: Work XS1 18x10.5 +15

Sorry, I don't have any before pictures as I was way too excited to see his work.



Now time to polish those wheels!

Went to Gerard yesterday to have 2 rear fenders rolled on my E60,

despite the difficulty of rolling fenders on my BMW, he did a great job, giving me plenty of extra clearance in the rear, paint hairline cracked very slightly on 1 fender, but I was expecting it since it was a previously repaired area. But nothing a paint touch up pen wont fix. He was very knowledgeable to spot the body repair before i told him about it.


Would recommend and definitely go to him again for fender rolling needs.

I had Gerard do my fenders just this Saturday.

Again, nothing but good things to say with his skill and knowledge. We had tried to do as little rolling as possible to give a me a clean look and although I still rub slightly during hard cornering, I can at least get down my driveway! I will be dialing in more camber to give additional clearance.

In the end, Gerard is definitely someone I would not hesitate to do fender rolling. he is a pro at what he does and a great person.

Had my 2nd car done with Gerard. Again nothing but perfect.

He takes his time and does it right.

He has a shop he can work out of now as well in burnaby.

Thanks G!

There are no pot shots to be made about Keeps rep. Yes Gerard was the guy who rolled fenders at Keep, I guess you can say he was my teacher.

At Advance we roll fenders properly, cleaning out all the dirt and rocks collected in the inner lip, heat up the paint slowly and work the fender slowly while still keeping the painted surface warm enough to keep the paint from cracking. Any previous paint cracks or repairs to the fender can cause poor out comes.

I just wanted to clarify for you guys.

Well said. I thought that was a very professional and matter-of-fact response under the circumstances. It says a lot about your composure. Just my $0.02.

I went back to Gerard after realizing dailing in more camber wouldn't work. He was more than willing to finish the job again. This time, we finally got all the clearance we needed and no damage was done to the body whatsoever. I just wanted to give him mad props again for being so courteous and professional about this and providing the care to my car that he would to his. Like I mentioned, before, I would definitely not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who needs their fenders done.

I had a wicked experience with Gerard this past weekend. He came out and did the fender rolling for my prelude. He's a very nice guy to deal with it and was professional right from the beginning. His quality of work is amazing. Nothing but good things to say about his work and professionalism.

Seems so far with only positive feedback with Gerard. Can't go wrong for him for some fender pulling then.

He speaks the truth. I chose to go to Phil today because first of all you cant beat his pricing and second of all his customer service. I wasn't expecting such quick response times and prompt service. He rolled my rears for my G35 coupe. He did an amazing job. Thanks again man. I appreciate it.

Not to take away from Phil, but Gerrard and all the boys over at serial nine go crazy for this sort of stuff.

They have a lot of talent. Props to them, I would only look as far as them to get work like fenders and stuff done.

Bumping this from the dead. Need to get insurance on clearing front fenders on my Mk6, and I wanted to check if SerialNine is still the way to go. Their site kinda looks like they've left the fender rolling business, and went into suspension parts. Also, rates for anyone that went with them?

I'd do my own, but last time I did rears it looked uneven from the top.

I had to get an unexpected fender roll when I was getting my rims mounted and balanced at Drivehard in Richmond. They did a great job rolling my fenders and not a crack or a scratch on my paint.

Had my rears rolled at Aria. They offer the cheapest price but you get what you pay for.

Paint cracked on both sides but luckily on the inner lips so not visible. Touched up/clearcoated with touch up paint.

Would spend more at other shops if I could time travel.

Bump. Any updated info for fender rolling? I likely need to roll my rear fenders to fit some 19x10.5 (285/30/19) on my E46 M3. Is Gerard still around?

Gerald, or his shop, won't touch BMW (specifically e46 and later) fenders anymore. I called them directly and asked a couple months ago. Also called TSS who recommended SerialNine as well. I was informed by SerialNine that rolling it is incredibly hard and most people elect to shave the inside of the fenders.

You should reach out to @kennyomama on IG, he has the greenish e46 m3 with the GTR hood and silver (PB's) TE37s. He did mine as well as several other e46 M3s. Tell him the guy with the black 330ci sent you his way.
