normally around $50-$70 a corner. most panel beaters will be able to do it for you. ttf reckon they can do it but i wouldnt trust them as far as they can be thrown. the only guy i know of that specializes in guard rolling is low down guard rolling ive got his number somewhere and a plus is that he comes to you

You can buy your own guard roller from bursons for $130.

Rolling guards is such an easy job, there was an instruction video on youtube but has since been removed.

Two important things to remember when rolling your guards:
1 - Soften the paint with a heat gun. The distance between the heat gun and the guard should be about the size of your fist. The guard must be hot enough for your fingers to still be able to touch.
2- Roll the guards with slow progression. Slowly ramping up the roller angle.


Good luck finding someone who do guard rolling for $50. When I got my quotes about 4months ago, it ranged from $80 - $120 PER guard. PLUS will not guarantee not cracking your paint because your vehicle is over 10yrs old.
