Hey guys,
First of all, Thank you all for helping, your instructions really helped and was quite accurate.

So I found some free time and someone to help me.
I started hitting as instructed while someone is supporting the other side.

At first it looked like it had no effect, then I tried a heavier hammer, because the access to this place is limited the hitting was done from 10-15cm distance so the smaller hammer didn't do much good.

After I switched hammers things started to move, slowly I found the right spots to hit and it started to get out.

In my opinion its not perfect, and the center dent is still a little inside but I think its at a level where it can be covered with bondo.
I'll let you be the judge, I attached images.

I assume there are some little high spots left that needs to be tapped, but I didn't have sand paper to test.

It looks like you are well on your way. In that first picture it almost looks like there is a brow way above the body line! Be careful, as it may be. Feel that door above the body line, feel it vertically, slide your hand up and down on that area while standing next to it, do you feel anything? That dent was pretty profound and with the intrusion beam right above it holding the metal as the dent was created it is a very real possibility that the skin buckled above the body line.

Thanks Brian.

You'll have to forgive me, my English is pretty good but I'm not familiar with all the technical terms.

Are you referring to the area above the red line in the attached picture?
Intrusion beam being the red line?

Thanks.

Yes in the first picture on your last post it looks like there is a brow or "buckle" in the panel running horizontal above that line a few inches. I may be wrong it could simply be a reflection but it looks like a brow.
