Had our dent been in an easily accessible part of the trunk, it would have been a simple hammer-and-dolly job. With more than two-thirds of the dent behind the wheelhouse, we had to get creative. The cop-out would have been to dust off the slide hammer and start drilling holes. Starting at the deepest point, we levered the dent outward with a prybar while simultaneously hammering the adjacent metal surrounding the prypoint. This lets the area take a set at the pried-out level.
