    Just picked up an Eastwood roller. Any success stories, horror stories or tips? Can't lie, I'm excited but NERVOUS!

    Using a heat gun to warm the paint will help to prevent paint cracking and chipping. Don't get the paint too hot, but you will want to warm the paint up.

    Take it slow and the Eastwood tool works really well. If you try to move the metal too much at once you will have issues.

    Good Luck!

    I've read nothing but great reviews on the tool itself. Just haven't found much in the way of experience on the sandwiches sheet metal our cars have on the rear quarters

    Yeah, I particularly liked the part where it specifies FRONT wheel openings only lol
    where did you buy yours? I got mine through ECS tuning for $75. I always thought they were much more expensive
