see if there is a paintless dent remover place in your area, they can fix alot of dents w/o having to repaint anything.

If it was warmer outside I'd tell you about a trick...if it's really warm outside, you can just get some dry ice, put it in a rag, and rub it over the dented area. The metal will contract and expand so fast that it will pop the dent out. This only works on certain dents and does not always work. I've used it before though, and it worked that time. Just gotta be hot enough to work.

I onno, haven't done it in a while. It was 90+ when I did it, and it was a crease pretty much in the roof of my old car.
