Default Dents Dents Dents

Just got a great mod the other night. One of my friends thought he'd be a bada$$ and force my hood down with his hands (after unhinging the hood rod). He forced it all the way down with his hands, and after not being able to lock it all the way down because of the latch on the front, he pushed it down even harder. I couldn't get to him fast enough to stop him, and just noticed this evening that he put a nice crease in the front of my hood. How can I get this fixed? It's not so noticeable to most, but it's a real eye sore to me. Is there some fix besides filler/primer/paint to mend this? It looks like a nice sharp crease that's about 4 inches long right next to the silver wings. Will a body shop be able to fix it? I also have another crease on the rear drivers side door where either someone kneed it or another car door hit it. One may be ok, but they're starting to appear like crazy. Or is the only option to fill it and repaint? I'm willing to pay just about any price to get all of this fixed.

CC, I saw a guy with one of these dent remover rods doing a job on dings and dents at an exotic used, oops, pre-owned, car lot. He used a smooth ball end to 'rub out' the dent. You may want to check this out.

jinkno, about your dents, go to a post "Islam" and think about how those dents and scratches may have occured! [:I] You may want to "Cruize" to Meca![8)][?]

I haven't used any of the "painless" dent removers, but a good friend of mine did - they applied heat and cold and the dent "popped" out without a trace. I would think it's worth a try - you could always revert to filling, sanding & painting a a last resort.
