I recommend finding a flat piece of ground and a helper or two so you can
push the car back-and-forth ... this way, you can use the tires to help you
"roll" the bat around the fender lip. It also helps to heat the paint up
first with a heat gun and remember to move the metal slowly ... if you're
very, very careful, you should be able to flare the fenders *without*
breaking the paint on either side of the fender.
