Painting over wallpaper - no other option - How to proceed

Clean with Diff and a large green scrubby pad used for pots and pans and lots of hot water. After most ALL of the adhesive is removed, let dry and prime the whole mess with Gardz.
Skim out gouges, sand, clean ,prime again with Gardz, paint.
