You do not have to coat the gaskets. I'm not familiar with steel plates that would get in the way of pan removal. Perhaps someone else familiar with the 380 will respond to this issue.

Don't forget to drain the converter. It's forward of the pan and holds as much or more fluid than the pan. In my case(also a 126 car), it's covered by a U-shaped cross member that has 3 bolts holding each side in place. I believe a 17mm socket gets them out.
