It isn't just O rings, all the sheet metal should be removed, cleaned, 
derusted and painted.  The heads should be cleaned externally and deflashed 
if it hasn't been done yet.  Remove and clean out the fins on the oil cooler 
and reinstall it with new seals.  Check the oil pan and remove it for dent 
removal if it doesn't look good.  Paint it and reinstall it with a new 
gasket.  Of course you will clean, derust and paint the valve vovers before 
you reinstall them.
Oh, there's lots to do.  Check and fix everything else, like the thermostats 
and thermostat doors.  You'll be busy for a while.
