Re: Guard Rolling

I dont know where in melbourne you could get this done but there is always a risk of breaking the paint even with the proper gaurd rollers, it will probaly cost between $50-100 per gaurd

Re: Guard Rolling

If they do it properly by heating the paint there is less of a risk.

Herrods do it they heat the gaurds and gradually roll them over several settings
