Head Gasket Job

I'm about to embark on the head gasket job on my 1993 400 SEL V8 4.2L - anybody out there? Can I get an "Amen" or at least a "Good Luck Sucker!"
But really, I would love for any advice about hidden bolts or the correct precautionary steps beyond the obvious, or anything related to the job at hand. I've done a Ford Taurus years ago, and many military vehicles when I served, but this car requires more attention to detail because it has to run on Monday. So, please tell me your stories.....
