haha i did the same thing with my passenger door at my girlfriends house against a hydro meter... if you bent it as far as i did to damage the door and fender you prob bent you pillar also so even if you do manage to bend the brackets back its still gonna close like crap. i just bought a new door with hinges and pounded the pillar back into shape. it worked an you wouldn't hardly be able to tell
good luck with the fix. maybe you can get ne hinges from a wrecker to help make life easier..
