Due to my clumsyness I have managed to drop my computer on my XR 6 bonnet and has left a nice little crease.
Is it possible for a panel beater to remove said crease? I ask because it is right over the bonnet frame/structure and is not accessable from underneath.

I have given myself a severe a*** kicking for being the stupidest idiot. Now I need to get the crease out or I'll hate myself forever.

If it can be done I'll be bothered to get the other dings out of the car as well.

Cheers

Edit - It is an EF XR bonnet and the crease is located just forward of the left hand bonnet vent.

They sometimes drill small holes in the frame to get access from underneath, then carefully pry the dent out using small levers. Depending on the dent it may still need finishing off with some bog.

I can deal with it being scratched because I will repaint it one day I cant deal with dents.

I'll call dent masters and see if they can help. Dents are shallow so I wonder if they can be pulled out.
