Your list looks pretty good.
I might be tempted not to 'wash' inside doors, maybe a good blow out with compressed air and wipe over.

If door trims are off, and you have access to cavities also on the body / enclosed areas of floor braces etc, might put in some rustproofing ?
Can't hurt, that's for sure.

I'd recommend a 50/50 mix of fishoil and tectyl 506 (4lt of each, enough to do a few vehicles), mix well and use a decent body schutz gun with rustproofing hose.

Can make one yourself about say 1m long clear plastic tube, make a fitting in the end out of some hollow brass, with 4 holes around the outside and a hole in the end, so when you pull the fitting in and out of tight places, the mix gets pushed in every nook and cranny.
Put paper / plastic sheet down, tins under drain holes to catch excess, and once drained well, you can reuse, the mix will skin off on the vehicle in 4 or 5 days, and the smell disperse.

Nutserts/Rivnuts or whatever they are called in Jamaica? ''Feel Free''? No, this one is a patented idea to modify the gun, damn things kill my hands/wrists doing 2, let alone 10 of them. Ok, don't tell me you have an air operated one? I need to make my retirement goal somehow?:cool:

Ok, just because you seem a nice guy, I will release the patent, still a PIA from time wise but as easy as pie to totally strip the threads out. I tend to rotate the handle back an forth slightly you then get a feel for when the nut tightens in the hole, one to three turns, then bang, :cool:
