Default Pulling Dent on Miata Help!!

Hi all,

My miata has some dents that I want to pull out, the biggest one is the one that behind the door and wondering what kind of tool I can use to pull it? or any suggestion to direct me to auto body shop to get it fix? Around how much I should be looking at?

Thanks

I once pulled out a large dent using a super strong suction cup from HF. It wasn't perfect, but was a lot better than before.

If you want to get it perfect, it'll probably need to get pulled and maybe heat shrunk since the metal stretched.

thanks Kenzo42,

I have tried the big suction puller but it is not strong enough to pull that dent out, ><.
