Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories
This was a hit and run. Paint is cracking where dent is. Should I try fixing it myself or take it to an auto-body shop?
I agree with the other answers. Junk yard would be your best course of action, replace the whole door and repaint

I know this thread is old, but for anyone else with a similar problem, call around to junkyards to find a good used door to replace it with--then have a bodyshop do the painting. This picture shows non-repairable damage without at least replacing the skin. You're better off keeping the factory seams with a good used door rather than replacing the skin, even if it costs a little extra to have to paint the inside of the door as well.

Hmm...you could try to remove the interior door panel to gain access to the inner one and then give a STEADY push to the damaged part of the car door although how it bent make it near impossible for the metal to regain it's original shape. The paint might also break off. To be honest, I would try the method I suggested you for a temporary fix and then take it to the body shop for the definitive fix :P
