6 dents on my jeeps door/need help fast

Hey guys,

So I have about a year and 3 month old 2011 Jeep Wrangler, and just a few days ago one of my friends thought it was a good idea too shoot an airsoft gun around our cars and he left 6 small dents (no bigger than airsoft bbs) in the left side of my door. Does anyone have a clue how much it would cost to fix and where I can go the cheapest for it??

Should cost less than 1 face sized dent. I'd tell the friend he has until Friday to pony up the repair bill for the BB dents before you make a face dent...

Yeah I completely agree, I've already gotten his attention and when I found out I made sure he knew I meant business when I said he was paying for it. Anyways thanks for the help and to be honest idk how much money that would be so could you give me an estimate on how much 1 face sized dent would cost??

I work for a Toyota dealership and my department is responsible reconditioning all used vehicles either trade-ins or purchase units.
My suggestion is to call a couple of service departments and ask about paintless dent repair vendors. I've seen our vendor take out hail damage vehicles with a body shop quote of $4500.00 for a quarter of the cost. If its just one panel, I wouldn't pay more than $150.00 to the service department. Our vendor charges $80.00 per panel and we mark up 25% to the used car department.
A simple solution if you've seen it done before.

I actually have a picture of it here does anyone know what they would generally estimate to have this fixed at? Right now I'm really looking for someone to help me out with a general starting price for something like this, the picture is in the link below. Someone please take a look and tell me what you think it would cost to have that done!!

If it was me, and I was paying retail, I wouldn't pay any more than $200. Where are you located?
