if you look at the front, the front fender lips are done differently from the rear from factory, and basically it make things easier to roll fenders in the front

hey wsup Chris! you should checkout that shop sometime in case you need some work done. there were 3 supras, 1 sc3 and a 350z when I was there getting some mods...that's their specialty. well anyways, at least your fenders turned out fine.

I paid $100 for both rears shaved, so $50/side

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
you're right, mine were still rough when they finished so it's gonna need a little sanding to make it smooth. no more rubbing though

Bumping this, to see if anyone has a spot in the 818 area, I called F1, but dude said they only shave now... (I could cut it if that's the case, but I want to get a slight pull).
