Man, you are about 3 weeks too late. I just did this when my cam cover was leaking, minus the VCT solenoid. I didn't remove the reservoir or take the cam gear cover off, just worked around them. Also a good way to ensure an even "compression" on the gasket is to tighten them in a kind of criss cross pattern, like one corner to the other type of thing. Also, did you replace the little grommets on the bolts for the cam cover? That is a good right up, and that sucks that your warranty ran out.
