it will never be perfect, but you can bend it back in while you have the door open, trial and error
I was just reading this quote in General that haro posted, and it made me think of something that happened on my vacation. As many of you know, I took a trip up to South Dakota this summer with my aunt and uncle in their Neon. While we were there, my braniac brother managed to lock the keys in the Neon. They called the Dodge dealer to have them unlock it for us. About an hour later, we went back to my aunt'* house to get the car, and kept hearing this godawful howling noise coming from the door, and my uncle said he could feel air coming in the door. So we got out to look at it, and the top of the door was bent about 3/4 of an inch from the frame of the car. Doesn't sound like much, but believe me, it was. So my uncle grabs the top of the door, and I grab the bottom, and we start twisting. I was amazed at how easy it was. Shows you how durable the Peons are. <<(that "P" wasn't a typo, )

I think he means he was able to bend it back into shape.

Yeah, we bent it back, but it was surprisingly easy, like bending a clothes hanger.
