Default removing a slight crease in fender?

look at my fingers how my pointer and middle finger distort.


i know if i get behind the fender by taking the splash guard off i can kinda "push" it back out but is there a technique? i don't want to make it any worse then it is now. Its not even that bad its only one of those dents that only i can see.

what type of tool as well? should it be a blunt object or should i just use my hands?

I would try to contact a paintless dent repair company. may pay $75 but that's cheaper than doing it yourself and making more problems.

It cost my dad about $400 to get a paintless dent removal off his door on his sport trac it was bad too someone smashed a cart up against it at walmart none the less the cost was good and the shops results were worth it.

Yours is not as bad as my dads was so you might be looking at about $100-$150 give or take

LOL I feel you on that man but I mean just go to a shop that paints cars they can usually do PDR's you can get a freee quote in most places and if you don't like the price than you can do it yourself.

Just in case you do decide to do it yourself I read somewhere on the web that you can use dry ice to remove dents from cars but don't do it just cus I am telling you look it up on google or something and make sure you get the proper info to do it I don't wana be responsible for messin up your trucks paintjob ahaha

lol for sure i know about the hot and cold dent removal. tried it with a propane torch and some canned air. didn't seem to work. i think that type of removal is if there is a big enough dent that can be popped out easily but you just can't get behind it if you know what i mean. i will never forgive the person who parked an inch away from me (that's how i got this) their mirror scraped my fender. i was an obstacle course trying to back out of. whatever its minor. thanks for the help!
