my doors got stretched

Okay ladies (and Gentlemen), the sandblaster did a fabulous job so far except the doors were done by a rookie and he stretched them. they bow in about an inch and will pop out easily but not stay there. I'm talking about '49 Ford F1 doors so the metal is not thin.

Question is, is there a way to tell if it's the inside or outside that needs shrinking and would you use heat/quench or a shrinking disk?

Kind of difficult to get a disk on the inside.

Any thoughts on the best way to get them back to normal???
