I found a different site that says Hojalatero, but when I went to look up the word in reverse it says it means plumber, which is totally not what I'm looking for. I'm looking for how to say bodyman, as in auto body work. Thanks!

A valid name is "carrocero", but in Spain (where I live) the most common is "chapista" (comes from "chapa", which means "metal sheet").

Keep in mind this type of word can vary a lot depending on the country/area.

I haven't had any luck finding a specific word but
to have a dent is tener una abolladura.

so maybe
Tengo una abolladura, necesito a alguien que puede arreglarla.
