OcTaLL, If you are interested in making you own, I have attached some picture I got explaining how to make you own a while back as I want to make me one. This will give you a good idea in how to make it if you have a spare jack lying around. Hope it helps.

Question.....If I may,

My velo is a 2007 model and came out from the factory with a "cut/rolled" lip. When my car was lowered on 17", it used to catch the arches and pull them out whilst ripping off paint. I took it to Le Mans Panelbeaters to have it inspected and the guy said to me that it is impoassible to roll these. The only thing I can do is to fit smaller wheels or raise the car.

Can I roll these arches with this machine??

Hi

I am in the midrand area, I have a mk1 velo, 60mm drop all round, tyres were touching the fenders so I used a pipe to roll the arches. the job came out "ok". I would appreciate some help in this area. Can any of you guys assist. Or quote me on doing it for me... I have 2 other mates with the same problem. Danmar auto wants 2 grand to do it, thats way way too much.

For 2K go have the tool made up as per instructions above.

Maybe even try getting the thing yourself:

Rent it out a couple of times and make your money back. :D
