-also resealed the vapor barrier in the rear doors because of water dripping into rear carpet about 6 month ago.
-replaced expansion tank cap back in 2011.
-will include a brand new BEHR expansion tank if price is right
-if seller pays asking price, i will include brand new BEHR radiator that i bought and keep as "just incase".
