Try painless dent repair. A guy did my entire Miata before I sold it for under $100 cash. Took out a major dent in the passenger side door and every other ding. Made the car look like new.

Man... my hood and trunk are covered in little dents. The previous owner told me a few little branches had fell on the car. I thought about doing paintless dent removal - but had no idea how much it cost. If I could get it done for a hundred bucks, I'm all over it.

Psst - unless it's a 2006 or later, the trunk is steel. Very thin, fragile steel. But steel.
