I'd probobly want it done the same way dmac has listed, maybe even replace both side segments depending on how bad it looked after trying to smooth them out. I'm not a real big fan of doubling up the sheetmetal, but I'm also a bit uneasy about disturbing the factory sealing that is done from the inside.
Anyway you go though, there is no inexpensive fix.
