Valve Cover Removal 1998 firebird 3.8l

I've been looking around the forums and others and can't find one where it helps with removing the valve covers. I need to replace the 2 gaskets because of oil leaks. Could anyone help with what tools and helpful tips on the removal!
Thanks!!!!

Remove the six bolts, on the drivers side you have to take the coil pack assembly off, pass side just move the wire's out of the way, but it you still have the rear engine lift bracket it has to come off first, have fun I hear it's a bitch, lucky mine was already gone.
