Scuffed Rocker Panel... How to fix?

I scuffed and dented the bottom of my rocker panel where it starts to curve in towards the frame. It dosnt look like the area I scuffed is metal, looks more like plastic. It took a lot of paint off and there are some deeper gouges. I was thinking about sanding it down a little and repainting it. I dont want it to look crappy though, I want it to blend in. Would it look decent? If not how can I fix it without taking it to a body shop? Also, any ideas on how to pop the dents out?
Heres a pic of the damage

Edit: Took it to the body shop and they want $300!!! thats insane...
