Open up all the traps and clean out bugs, cobwebs, etc. When replacing the
end caps, be sure they make a good seal.
Make sure all the hardware (clamps, nits & bolts, sheet metal screws) are in
good condition, and replace where necessary with new stainless steel.
Wouldn't be a bad idea to replace the coax balun with new coax (read docs
for velocity factor).
When you assemble it , make sure the elements are in the correct positions.
The CL36 is a good antenna and should be a good performer for you and give
you many years of service.
Good luck and 73
