Rolling fender lips

I've just gotten through trimming the fenders on my scout, and I was wondering if you guys just leave the sharp edge or do you roll the edge under to make a lip. If do how do you do it?

I used a mess of pliers/vise grips/channel locks. Just tucked the fender in one pinch at a time. Seemed to work best if I only bent a little at a time.
You can take out the rough spots with a hammer.

Hammer and a dolly will work, so I've heard. I just left mine alone.

Mark a line 1/8th to 1/4" above your cut line. Then use a set of vice grips ( clamped even with marked line ) and slowly bend the sheet metal in and under. Continue along the line one width of the vise grip at a time. Once you get a good bend in it use a body hammer and beat the bend up to 90 degrees. That will give you a nice flat strait fender line. And from there if you want to you can fold it over to make a nice round edge.
