I have great access to it on the other side of the door, the inside of the car if you will. Here are some photos. I would love tips/tricks on how to flatten it. I plan on just a simple touch up paint and clear coat for now and painting her a whole new color next year.

How hard can it be right?

Heres a direct link to my flicker for picture of the damage.

I had a similar dent in mine (Thanks wife). I have a hammer and dolly set at the house. I wrapped both the hammer and dolly in some shop rags to protect the paint. You have to use a dolly. You need a hard object to brace against the sheet metal or the hammer will warp it. I used the dolly on the outside of the door and LIGHTLY worked the hammer from the outside of the dent to the inside. Alternate both top and bottom, working toward the center. Be patient and use a real light touch. It will work out. You can still see a slight bend in the reflection on my door, but it is hard to see if you don't know it is there.

I got a hammer and dolly set priced at 79.99 with a 20 dollar coupon and free shupping. 60 bucks for a life supply of every dolly or hammer id ever need lol. better than 560 bucks for repairs and labor and painting and labor. oh and my touch up paint pends were 24 bucks for a primer pen a clear coat pen and a paint pen. great stuff! I'll post pics next weekend!!!!
