Dent on a cowl plate

Fourth time removing my front doors and today noticed this small dent. Im sure it's from the passenger door that accidently opened with full flex the other time. I could only see it after giving the jeep full bath today. Its not that bad, just wanted to see if i should do paintless dent removal or there is oem cowl plate i can order from dealers? Any suggestions people? Thanks

Someone makes a plastic cowl cover (for looks). It actually looks really good. It's a matte finish cover that I guess replaces the stock one.

push it out or by armour

Take the cowl off and try pushing it out. It does not lokk creased it should pop out. Or there is this option.

I wish I could find a heavier cowl instead of stick on armour.

I paid $60 for a PDR guy and he came to my house and fixed it in my driveway.

Try a brick of dry ice. Leave the Jeep sit in the sun all day, then hold the block of ice (use HEAVY gloves) on the dent for a couple minutes.

I paid a PDR guy $50 to get mine out. It took him about 20 mins.
