Oil Pan gasket, anything I should know?

Hey all, I'm pretty much a rookie at working on engines, but I'm learning. Anything strange I should know about changing an oil pan gasket on an 86 grand Wag. Seems pretty simple to me. So hopefully it'll be one of those two hour projects that take a whole weekend and have me throwing wrenches at the wall of my gagage.

The Chilton's manual explains it well. There's a front and rear neophrene seal and the 2 cork gaskets for the sides. You'll have to seal where these gaskets meet. the manual recommends permatex no. 2. before the pan goes back on, make sure the pan flange isn't distorted and don't tighten up the bolts too much.
