I don' know what a standard block is but, what I use on a repair the size your working on is a long block board...16 X 2 3/4...it doesn't need to be flexible...I prefer them not to be...I don't own a flexible long board.

Having this piece of equipment would make your job easier...but...you need to think of the dent as being an imperfection in the whole door...so no pressure on the block...long board, short block...whatever block your using. I move the block at about a 45 degree angle in relationship to the dent....10 to 15 strokes and then I move the block in the opposite 45 degree angle... continue this method, back and forth, always feeling as to how your progressing, no pressure on the block....it doesn't matter what shape your trying to repair, this method will always follow the contour of the panel.

Hope this helps

Ray
