If it's the lip you want to roll some tyre places have a tool that bolts to the wheel hub or on my car I used a pice of 2inch pipe and drove the back and forth until I got the results I was after. Just get a friend to hold the pipe and let it roll with the tyre slowly increasing the angle with each pass but only do this on a very warm day to avoid the paint splitting.

yer you can just get pipe and put it undr your guard and push your car back and forth, do it slowly but or the paint will chip.

We used various diameters of heavy duty [grey] PVC pipe depending on tyre clearances and a variable adjustment weight on the guard, a pretty girl is best. Same as using an apprentice but easier on the eye, not too pretty though or the job takes too long. Exactly how she's positioned on the guard is variable.

Yes, sandpaper and touchup paint. Be careful not to pump the panels at the same time.
