Default Corner of trunk lid bent up by back glass, any suggestions on how to fix?

I wake up this morning to find my trunk slightly fubared!! Someone dented the corner of my trunk. Actually, it was like pryed up so at the top corner close to the glass it was sticking up. I was able to push it back down but there is a slight crease there now. Anyone know if its possible for a dentfixer to massage it out? :cry:

Had the same thing happen to my Baja...tried to pry open the rear door. They only used enough force to crease the back edge of the door and crack/chip the paint, but the damage was done. The paint damage is smaller than a pencil eraser, but nonetheless down to the metal. Twice I've been quoted over $250 (once by a family member!! grrrr...) to have it fixed. So, until I find a real need (or more damage), touchup paint it is...

If I understand you correctly than no.
That is the spot where the frame metal meets the trunk skin and is verry difficult to get tools in there to pry it up (paintless method). And other than cutting the frame metal away from the underside, hammer and dolying it back into place then welding back in the frame metal there is no way to use the hammer dolly method.
Any way you look at it I think your going to have to get a new trunk lid.
