Hi, I would try to pull out the dent with suction cups, first. Depends on how bad it really is.

There are the large glass handling suction cups that sometimes work. If there is a crease, it may not pull. If it is just pushed in, it may pop. Dent King a brand of puller that uses a hot melt adhesive to stick the cup to the metal, so you can generate a little more force. I have used it to pull some hail damage. Paintless auto repair people might make a small hole on the inside panel and push it out with some of their special tools.

It sounds like the panel dent will be hidden by the stone guard. So try the non-invasive solutions mentioned above, and then just live with the results. Only you (and those who read this thread!) will know it's there.
