    Okay, I've gotten the "main" part of the dent out with a suction cup. Now, there are still two small dents at the top and bottom of the original dent. I've tried the "DIY hairdrier/air can" trick, and that didn't work. I've tried going under the fender and pushing them out, but I can't.

    I don't want to pay big $$ to have it removed, but I will if I have to. Any tips?

    I'll probably have to do that, but just seeing if there are any other ways to do it.

    I have never tried it myself, but I have been told that a basketball works well. Start with a flat basketball, shove it into the fender behind the dent, then inflate. My uncle did this on an old 79 Ford truck, the truck looks good now. Never saw it before the basketball trick, but can't see a dent now.

    Take out the cubby on that side and pop it back out, the dent is big ienough to have its own leverage. So a little elbow grease and it'll pop back out.
