Buick body help

I am about ready to start on the body work of my little 62 Buick Skylark. The body is near perfect but along what I call the belt line, the car has a sharp edge running its length that has numerous dings from being hit by doors. I really don't know how to attack these small dents. The car is black and will stay black so the dents are a real factor. Can anyone help this old man with any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Mike

You are talking about a body line down the center of the door? It isn't the "belt line", the belt line is the point right below the windows.

I think we are on the right track that it is the body lines running along the side of the door right about middle of the door below the door handle a few inches, right?
