Whadya do when the whole truck looks good other than something like this here...

Could you just take it off and heat it up somehow, set on it's side and let gravity reshape it? Or would it be better to just peel it off and replace it with a straight one, either from a jy or new?

Also, whats a good solvent for getting the double sided tape residue off?

Easy part is the solvent. There is a product I came across a few years ago called "Goof-off". Found it at Home Depot but you can get it on-line.

The body panel....

Heating will damage the paint and sometimes warp the sheet metal more. There are body shop tricks I have seen where you drill a hole (or series of holes) and insert a cable and attach a flat steel weight. The cable is then tightened to pull out the dent.
