It's something I'm always skeptical of. With the flanges rolled up I see a potential rust trap and when they are shoved out enough to flare the side of the arch, the flat edge, doesn't look right to me as it's in the wrong plane.

To the OP; I'd suggest renting the tool out to any members who are interested.
As others have said, it's easy to mess up and really not worth the risk on someone else's car unless you have all the diclaimers.
