Pinch Weld Mod - Advice Requested

For those of you who have had you pinch weld seam hammered flat for more tire room, could you advise on doing it yourself vs having a shop do it?

The job looks straightforward, but without the tools, I'm debating just paying to have it done.

What was your experience like (or price paid for)?

If you plan to do off roading with it. Do the rear as well just behind the rear door. I cut my tires off roading. Not hard to do brother.
