Main Relays
Vehicle Speed Sensor
Door hinges that have little play
Uncracked front bumper lights

You'd be hardpressed to find LED headlights but HID kits are easy to find. I would also recommend an H4 conversion using e-code Hella or Cibie housings. It's amazing what changing the beam does.

A mechanic try to adjust the locking mechanism so that it is more tight. But it still does it.
Is it the rubber around the door need replacement?

More than likely the hinges themselves are worn out causing the door to sit lower and not seal properly.

Buy what you can afford to store. There are guys like me that have been doing this for years already.
