Most use the 3m pads since they'll produce a smoother finish, its what Ford recommends as well. A light coating of never-seize is a good idea, you should clean off most of what you have applied though. I apply it and then wipe the bulk off leaving just enough to color the surfaces.

Never pull the cowl or the alternator. Just takes the right angle to weasel her out. The 03s I always remove the heat cover on the exhaust side. No need on the other years. About 3-4 hours total job time including cleaning.
