I remember seeing a video somewhere, maybe Youtube, guy was hammering sheet metal supported on a sand bag. People post all kinds of how-to videos on YouTube.

Harbor freight sells a small hand size leather shot filled bag that is perfect if you can get to both sides of the dent. If it's just a soft dent and not a crease in the tin, hammer and dolly work is much easier on vintage sheet metal it will usually return to it's original shape.

Trusty homemade wooden mallet and the shot filled leather bag from Harbor Freight, and after a couple of well aimed smacks. A picture of the little bike the fender goes on.
