Just for the sake of obsessive-compulsive completeness, must add to my previous post:
$28 to replace the hood shocks. No more sticks to keep the hood from slamming down! Can't believe it took so long to get around to doing that when it turned out to be a 5 minute project. Savings: $100
Cleaned the headlights with this fancy chemical sanding/sealing system from Walmart for $20. Got rid off all the fog and yellowing. Very cool.
Okay, I feel better now.
