Rolled my ef gaurds using a medium hammer and palm pressure on the outside,just firm pressure.Patience is a virtue dont try to roll them in one hit.Go back and forward with small hits.If still not confident get a panel beater to do it,costs less than new gaurds.

you will crack the paint, if you get a proper guard roller and a heat gun u can fully lip it in without even cracking or damaging the paint OR leaving any dents / uneven dents in your guard or ripples.

simple as this

you want a s**t job, dont spend money.

I just got my car lowered (superlows) and 17"s put on and have had no problems. Car sits nice aswell.
Guy at the tyre place said if you get 18"s they recommend it as a pre-caution, and if you have superlows (even with 17"s) they say do it.

I found that my 17's on my EL which is kinda low used to scrub going around roundabouts however it no longer does it since the tyres ended up rolling the guard for me :D

a block of wood wrapped in masking tape and a hammer works perfectly fine, unless your some nuff nuff who cant even hold 1.
