    Cool no worries. Just go gentle on the door if you do decide to go the panel beating route slow and steady

      this may not help, but ......
      the trouble is that a dent stretches the metal.
      if the metal is thick enough and the dent not too big then flattening out and sanding/polishing can make it disappear.
      a panel beater told me way back that he would heat the metal up, I mean real hot, and then put a wet towel over the panel to shrink it.
      also when a door has been embossed it's tricky to sand and get the same even finish.
      you could try this method, heating it up on some brick or cement sheeting and then pouring water over it.
      isolating the heat will be tricky also as when you cool the door down it may warp/twist and end up worse.

                            Maybe try Herb Silvers. He does a heap of these restorations and has stock piled parts over the years. He might not be cheap though.

                                Finished fixing up the major dings on the cabinet yesterday. I like to leave some smaller signs of wear on the cab so it has some character as well as the number stamped on the front. 3 coats of zinsser undercoat on.
