Man, that's really coming together now! I'll be VERY excited when I start getting even close to where you're at! Seeing what you went through on that hood, I'm very glad I was planning to fabricate one anyway (I kinda have to because of the big six I'm running). Can you get access to an English Wheel or just a planishing hammer? The hammer will do it but a wheel would be better. I can't tell how deep the dents are but they look like you can smooth them out. Another thing you could try to shrink them, is slapping them with a large hammer handle against a big pipe or other big curved metal surface. EDIT: I meant a wooden slapper, not a hammer handle, in this application.
