Mirror Dent? What was your repair cost?

So this past weekend I was in the Outer Banks with the top down and the doors off.

Great fun!

Time to come home and I am putting the doors back on. In my mind, I am already wary of the mirror dent issue so I am not worried. I take the driver door down and line up everything, no problem. I had a friend helping me, but didn't need him. So as I am just fitting the door completely on, I hear my friend grunting as he is attempting to line up the passenger door. In a panic, thinking he might scratch the paint, I run over to help line up the hinges. and I F&#K!NG forgot to attach the door strap!

Too late...now I have the mirror dent. And it looks BAD! I know it is my fault, but WTF?

So, anyone get it fixed yet? What did it run? Did anyone try to pop it out themselves?

Thanks.....

By Mirror dent he means that frequently when the strap isn't attached to the door to keep it from swinging freely, it swings all the way back and dents the JK. He doesn't actually mean he dented the mirror, but that his mirror did the denting.
