What kinds of things do you recomend I do to get Coco ready to be neutered?

I think it may be time for the ole snip snip. I've had Coco for about 3 months and before that a girl had him for about 2 - 3 months. Is there anything special I need to know to get him ready or to get my self ready? Anything special I should do to his cage or to make him feel better. I'm kind of nervous having th elittle guy go through this...

He's been a handful but IO love the little puffball...

I think the best thing you can do is to make sure you find a good vet who has experience with rabbits (if you don't have one already).

Yeah, finding a good exotic vet (not just any old cat and dog vet) is VERY important! Your rabbit is still pretty young so you dont need too, but you can get blood tests and/or X-rays done if you want, for peace of mind if you are worried. My Smudge is getting his surgery in a month, so I know how nervous you must feel, LOL!
Im getting Smudge some new treats and stuff to make him feel better after too.

Definitely find a bunny savvy vet. I know the others said it but it is so very important. I got the blood work done for all of my buns so the vet could be sure they used the proper type and amount of anesthesia. If the vet says fast him before the operation CANCEL his appointment immediately. Buns cannot vomit and should never ever be fasted. I put hay in the carriers on the way into the vets and sent them with some of their own food and some hay. I even sent some treats for them.
Make sure that when he comes home he doesn't jump around too much. He should keep all four paws on the floor for a bit. He may not need pain medication but you may want to ask your vet for some just in case. My buns have always used metacam. I only had to give Penelope pain medication after her spay - she was older when spayed. Once the first dose of metacam got into her system she was absolutely fine again. He should be fine though - it's easier on boys.

After his op he will probably shake a bit and he will feel very cold so you need to keep him nice and warm and basically just leave him alone to chill out xx
