Default Fender rolling or shaving shops in Orange County?

I called Dynamic earlier today and I was told they no longer do it so I'm not sure where to go anymore. Anyone know any local shops that will shave my fenders for a good price?

Or if anyone has experience with fender mods can help me out, I should have access to all the tools necessary.

why not just do it yourself? a belt sander and bunch of sand paper and you are good to go. take longer but i think the results are smoother / better

i just did 2 cars the past 2 weeks, and i did another 2 last yr.

if you go for shaving fenders outside, probably around 40 bucks a fender. but from what i have seen usually the work is far from "finished", coz' the fenders are still very rough and and not straight. that's why i always just do it at home

i generally suggest against rolling fenders on lexus, the paint can chip pretty easily. shaving is far better and saver

ah sorry about that. didn't see the thread earlier otherwise i would have commented. shaved more than a few fenders all the way to the edge already and never an issue. imho it creates more room than rolling as well

What Henry said is correct. Lexus rear fenders have two layers of metal, and has a higher chance of creasing and chipping paint when rolling. The fronts should be fine for rolling.

okay, here's one for the pros...

fenders are COMPLETELY shaved, both front and rear. What shop dares to pull them out more...

this is for my 1st gen SC BTW, and im NOT worried about paint damage.

good stuff... thanks for the tips guys. i was considering rolling my rears but i did hear about the creasing on top of the risk of paint chipping, so i figured i would get them cut/shaved instead. but if the fronts are cool, maybe i will get those suckers rolled. once again thanks.
