Interested in how that works out for you. We went...um...somewhere last week and picked up a rear quarter panel ding. No exchange of paint, no paint loss, so I'm thinking one of those dent popper guys might be able to do the trick...
...but then I wondered "Does their thing work on aluminum panels?"
BTW, I just tried to have a look at the car, for both the ding we got and to see if we have your issue, too, and it's just impossible; the car has water droplets all over it like a sheet of diamonds, having just come in from the rain; that coupled with the directly overhead fluorescent lighting and my sketchy eyesight yields little usable information.
