Imagine parking a couple feet away from a wall and opening the door with a good amount of force. The edge of the door is pushed in at about a 30* angle and is an inch wide all the way down. To me it looks the door was opened into a wall or a post of some sort but it's more damage than you'd imagine if you opened the door with a normal amount of force. The pic is not my car but this is the relative shape of the door. Just imagine the damage being done from right below the body line until where the curvature of the door disappears in the picture.
I imagine with my skills, If I just grab a dolly and hammer and go at it, I'll wind up with a wavy mess where the edge of the door looks awful.
What if I took a 4x4 and put it up to the edge of the front side of the door and traced the shape into the 4x4 so I get the curvature of the door traced into the wood. Then I cut the wood so I essentially have a big door sized dolly that's the same shape as the door. Then I could either use that to hammer into or I could now take both pieces of wood, one has the convex and the other has the concave shape of the door cut into it and I could clamp them to the edge of the door and try to beat it back into shape and hope that the wood kind of molds it back into it's original shape.
Am I over thinking this? The unfortunate part is both doors have the same type of damage
