Before I remove bath end cap

I've got a dent in an upper rear end panel. I've already popped one out in a lower panel by pushing from the inside. This dent is up under the bath end cap. Before I remove that end cap I am hoping someone has a great idea for pulling that dent from outside.

Try painless dent removal companies. They use a suction cup device and pull out the dent from the outside. Is it possible to get access without fully removing the end cap? Maybe just release the lower edge of the end cap, flex it out of the way and reach up in to the dent.

I'm gonna try that. I've got a 3 inch crack in the cap right where I need to pull it out. I'm afraid pulling on it will worsen that crack and make my decision for me about the 11 panels.

Or cut out a section below the dent and patch it back in with fiberglass after pushing the dent out. It will require repainting if you do this though.
