Mid-season tune ups

Two weeks of almost daily fishing tested my gear to the max. Time to pamper it a bit with a through tuneup. What's your preferred method for avoiding the problems of the salt? I typically soak the reels in a warm lightly soapy basin for about 30 minutes followed by a coldwater rinse, air dry on the bench and then WD-40 on all the moving parts before reassembly.
Do you remove your flylines and clean them separatly? Any treatment or coating?
