Default Fender/Front Bumper damage

I had a little accident and it resulted in some damage to the fender and front bumper. There was a bit more damage but I had that fixed at a local shop.

What remains is basically cosmetic damage. The fender area is bent a bit and it doesn't align well. The front bumper holes that attaches to the clips are messed up as well and don't snap into the clips. I had to use a washer because one of the holes broke.

I'm thinking of taking it to Maaco (or something similar) to see if they can possibly straighten out the dent and align everything. What do you guys think? I feel like this is something they could handle in less than two hours but I know they are going to take a "couple hours" doing it.

I've never taken off the fender myself but it also seems like something I could do...but I have no idea how to straighten out the dent. Another solution is to find some sort of adhesive that would hold through hell.

Honestly, if someone could handle the job for around $150...I'd do it.

pdr tech with a hand dolly might be able to hammer that out, but will require paint to fix it completely.
