You might just be able to remove the panel and get a new one ...its not part of the hood. If you dont want to do that try dent wizards.

Just try it, it can hurt nothing. Remember to turn the can upside down. Let us know how it turns out.

If the piece is removable, take it off and go to harbor freight and buy a dent kit (7 Piece Body and Fender Set), they are cheap. Heat it up a bit and use the curved metal rolling tool on the back of the body panel and roll out the dent. Then you have the tools for future use. It doesnt appear to be creased, so you should be able to fix it. Good luck...
