Aaahh didn't read the bit about the rears properly.We've got a proper arch rolling machine that bolts onto the wheel hub with a roller on the end,it SHOULD be able to push the lip outwards by a small amount.

What we always warn people though is that the paint could flake off even if it's heated first to soften it.

I know I've said it before but..

raise the back end 8-10mm

Make the gap on the rear the same as the front. Not only will it solve the problem, it'll look to be sat nicer too [y]
