Changing oil pan gasket

This is the first Mustang I have ever owned. In fact my first Ford.

I have a leak at the very front of the oil pan. It started with my first oil change in May after I took her out of storage for the winter. It was cold up here. The leak wasn't too bad at first but as the hot weather roled in, the drops are now getting more apparent on my piece of cardboard protecting my garage floor. All the bolts are secure. I had to do the Trans Gasket three weeks ago for the same reason, a small leak appeared.

Can anyone assist me with the steps for changing the oil pan gasket with the motor still in the car?

Do you suggest changing the oil pump at the same time? The gauge is showing no problems but while the pan is down I'm thinking, why not!

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you
