Question Can My Hood Be Saved!?

Greetings everyone! This is my first post and hope one of you experts can help me out

I took my car through a drive through car wash, which isn't usually my style (I usually wash by hand), and low and behold, when I got home I noticed I had a dent on my hood. The dent is right above the drivers side headlight, and is smack dab on the corner edge of the hood (see attached pics). I don't know if a PDR Technician will be able to remove the dent since it is not very accessible from under the hood. Do you guys know if the dent can be repaired? Luckily the paint is fine, but it is definitely an eye sore I'm trying to avoid having to have it sanded/filled/and repainted.

Thanks all for your help!

The only real issue is that the hood is aluminum and not a memory metal.

Any decent shop should be able to do it with no issues.

A good PDR guy will be able to get it out. If you were close to me, I know a guy who will come to your house and do it and is phenomenal!

Thanks all for the advice/tips! I'm going to call around town today and see if I can find a good PDR guy. I'm close to the Motor City, so there must be someone good out this way! I'll update with pictures and the cost once the dent is removed (hopefully it turns out flawless).

Ok, so I took my car to the Dent Genie (In Livonia Michigan). At first they said it couldn't be repaired, but after some persuading, I convinced them they could do the job. They ended up drilling a small hole on the underside of the hood to get to the dent, and then worked their magic! I think they did a great job considering it was in such a tough spot. I've attached some more photos of the hood after the PDR Tech went to work on it. It's not perfect, but is darn close.
