Was bored yesterday so I thought I'd look at the dents at the rear of me Forrie.
This is the left hand side dent before.

And this is it after i tackled it with a 4lb mallet and an ordinary hammer.

This the right hand dent before.

And this is it after.

Not too bad a job seeing as I've never done any panel beating before, i reckon a couple more hours work with the hammer, then some sandpaper and filler and it'll be ready for repainting. My drivers side door has a dent in it too,

does anyone know if it will be accessible with the door card removed?

My Subaru is very tatty. Dents aside, the paint is peeling from both bumpers where they were painted with no primer??? Once the dents are sorted I'll get it repainted. Am thinking of Champagne for the wheels and silver bits.

Around here you would be pulled for the damage to the OS rear lamp, so repair or replace this item 1st, stop the rust on the dings and wait for better weather.
Spraying in 0 C is not recommended

The inside of your door will all come off, pretty logical with the odd hidden screw to keep you guessing

there is various bits of metal in the way to access that ding I reckon
