For the rear fender, I removed the carpeting inside the trunk. My dent was right above the tail light, so it was easily accessible. I used a piece of wood and a hammer to pop it out and then sanded/touched up the area with some paint. It looks like crap, but better than before. A professional repair would cost me almost $1000 for the rear quarter.
As for the bumper, I removed the whole bumper cover and pushed the dent out with a heat gun.

I did! It turned out to be the hood latch. I raised the little rubber stoppers inside the engine bay to put more tension on the lock, and it eliminated the noise. Check this out:
