First of all the tool can be bought for like $250 not $500. If you look around enough you can find places that will rent it. I found a few guys on VW forums that will rent for about $75. There is also a few websites that rent it for the same price. Many of them have a waiting list though. If you call tire rack you can rent one for just the cost of shipping but you have to wait about 6 months, there's a big back up. I found a place in texas that specializes in 300zx's and they have the tool. They rent it out too, usually only locally but I called them and asked if they would ship it to rent. They said no problem. Cost me $49, and that includes shipping both ways. The rental is for about a week. go to splparts.com and e-mail them to ask about teh roller. It's arriving at my house on tomorrow, I have a week with it, then it will take a week to get back to them. You might also want to call some local body shops, they may even rent out the tool to you. These are aviliable you just have to look around!!!!! Don't cut the lip off either, it's there for strength to that your quarter panel dosent bend up easily. You want to keep that lip there even if you are folding it in, just don't cut it off. A little trim would probably be ok but don't cut it all th way back. So do some searching and make calls locally then if you have to resort to renting one by having it shipped to you go that route like I did. Good luck guys!!
