Default Rusted Strut Tower repair Kit Question

I have looked all over for this answer. So I have a 2000 caravan and the strut tower needs the repair kit terribly. However before I go and order it can anyone possibly tell me what tools I'll need to do the job? I am going to use the glue and already have the gun. I could really use some step by step on this. Also I have no idea how to remove the cowling so I can get to the strut. Thanks so much.
