I am an advocate of paintless dent repair. A friend who owns a body shop is certified in it. I did it myself on my 84 Daytona with a spoon and 3 hours of patience. It came out well for an amateur.

The photos look better than it really is. I did press one small point a little too far out, and if you look very closely, there is a tiny star-shaped crack in the paint. Other areas are not quite out all the way.

I just removed the interior panel of the hatchback and reached in with a regular teaspoon and started pressing and rubbing slowly. MANY strokes. Stopped often to look at it and decide where to work the metal next. Did it all at ambient 70-80F weather outside, no heat or cooling applied. Best of all, it was free. If I ever restore the car, I'll have a pro finish it, or have to use a light layer of filler.
