Here's some good news for you (it was for me with our Pearl 1990 
200...) if you will look around, you should be able to find a 
business with a name like "Dent-Magic".  It should be one of a new 
generation of shops which can **remove dents with no paint or body 
work*!!  Yes, and it's not a gimmick!

These guys go to a special school which teaches them techniques to 
"massage" small dings out of body metal with plastic and metal tools.  
The idea is that they will use plastic punches and smooth-faced metal 
tools to literally stroke the metal back into place.  

I watched a gent take two door dings out of my Pearl Audi in less 
than an hour, and he charged $60 each.  I CANNOT even see where they 
were- and I know where it was!!  There are limitations to what they 
can do - they can't take out creases or eliminate paint damage - but 
your dent sound perfect for them.  They DO need to be able to get at 
both sides of the body panel, but this is possible in most places.

I can testify, folks,  This is the real deal, and it's worth every 
penny they charge!  If you're in doubt, ask them for references and 
talk to past customers.
