Have you thought about a car Dent-Doctor? These guys are real magicians for Sheetmetal works and it shouldn‘t be important for him if it is a door of a car or a helmet...

As odd as it sounds phone some companies that sell musical instruments. There are individuals who specialize in removing dents from the ends of tubas and trumpets etc. The equipment is basically two steel balls and the flared end of the musical instrument is rolled between the balls under pressure and it removes the dents.
