    spray all the bolts down with PB blaster. Chase all the bolt holes. I would recommend using SS bolts but at a minimum use anti sieze on all bolts. Might as well change the thermostat and hoses while you are at it.

    I would actually hold off changing it today if possible, start spraying the bolts today with PB Blaster and spray them again and again over the next several days. As said above you might as well do the thermostat and coolant while you are at it.
