Did you buy a fitting kit with these pads? Got an email saying did I forget to buy one this morning.

You don't need those, just re-use what's already there, though give them all a good clean as per the service manual.

You will need the following (I'm sure others will add anything I've forgotten):
  • Jack
  • Jack stands (use these, do not work under a car using a jack only)
  • Wheel chocks
  • 12mm, 17mm and 19mm spanners/sockets (get a set of spanners and a socket set)
  • Brake cleaner
  • Wire brushes
  • Ceratec or similar for the shims
  • Silicone lube to squirt into the piston rubbers
  • Red rubber grease for the rubber boots
  • Piston windback tool for rears - something like this:
    Amazon Amazon
  • Piston pushback tool for the fronts - something like this:
    Amazon Amazon
  • I'd recommend a torque wrench for the wheel nuts, though this is not essential.

That dent won't come out...The lip is double skinned, You may be able to get a little of the top ding out via the rear light cluster but its not worth the time. Get it straight to a bodyshop.
