I thought about how to do this repair - a lot. Among the thoughts I had was to do the slide hammer thing (I have one). Another was to drill a hole (or holes) in the backside to try to pound it out from the back side. But at the end of the day, due to the crinkling of the inner fender part, I decided to do the cut out the whole section approach.
