Bent Rear Fenders

As the title says I bent not just one but both of my rear fenders, nothing too major. I cracked a little bit of the paint and DO NOT want it to spread, and I was also curious how I can bend them back? (Rubber martlet etc.) The bend on both sides is towards the front of the truck on the bottom half and are about a half dollar bent out.
Your feedback is very important, because I need to get this done ASAP before the chipping gets worse, I'd also like to know if there is a spray or compound I can use on it to keep the spreading of the chipping to a minimum and for it not to rust.

Grab it with a pair of pliers with a towel between pliers and truck. Bend slowly. the metal will flex.

No they didn't affect the support brace, I just need a lift because these 31.5's rub when you got 3 people in the back. Lol
