Give your idea a shot.

All you can lose is some time.

You can always replace the panel, if you reach the point of saying "well I at least tried".

Some people love doing what many say "can't be done".

Ask me, I have been there many times, and for that matter, I still am.

You can do it all with
Mallets but you need something on top to buck against. You can sand to get dimples out but you will go through the Aclad if that yr used it. Might think about white top coat to hide small dents and cool the trailer.

Thank you Perry, very good advice.
We are stripping the interior still so we haven't done any more with the dents. Theres so much to become familiar with, the forum is an indispensable source, especially folks like you. I'm confident we will tame the dents, sharp creases on the other hand....

In lieu of buck you might try of bag of lead shot. Good luck with your dent removal.
