your best bet is probably to just fill them and repaint your entire hood

I bought that "ding king" kit from Schucks, and it works great. May take a few tries, but it works.

Pops-A-Dent doesn't work, I've tried it. I've heard from numerous people that Ding King does work though.

i know for steel you can lay a towel over the dent with some dry ice, the extream cold will pull the dent out. i do not know if this will work with alm.

Get a flat face body hammer and a dolly. Put the dolly on the back side of the dent and hammer softly around the dent. When hammering start from the outside and work your way into the center of the dent (in a circular motion). Make sure to hold the dolly in place.

$19.99 I think, could be $29.99.

It already paid for itself though. I've popped out dents from my friends cars for about a buck a dent.

I've done it on a few other cars, and for small/medium door dings it works pretty well.
