Default Best way to store heads/cams

Ive got some built heads I recently acquired as well as a new set of cams which arent installed in the heads.

wrap the heads up in a old towel or something so you don't get critters/whatever in water passages

cams I don't think it really matters. put them somewhere where they won't fall.

Not as critical with as short of cams as we have but I used to store all my older longer camshafts straight up and down with a light lube of motor oil on them and wrapped and sealed in plastic or garbage bags. Worked good, if you don't lube they will rust by sitting out and you'll need some sctoch brite to take the rust off when you go to install them.
