Default Upgrades from 2001 models?

Guys,
I'm still new here and have seen several references to parts that were only used on the early PT's, like plastic trim for the seat frames and inside the glove box.
Is there a concise list of these somewhere for me to memorize whenever I get my exercise at the local Pull A Part?

Here's one from memory. I've done all these on my 2005 GT except for the engine cover and door rubber.

1. Glove box trim.
2. Inner seat pedestal trim.
3. Lighted door lock switches.
4. Premium speakers for front doors.
5. Rear sway bar with all hardware.
6. Aluminum spare tire. ( from very early 2001 PT made in 2000)
7. Door for rear cubbie.
8. High Pitch Horn to go with existing low pitch horn. Go from beep to honk.
9. Engine Cover and mounting pegs (NA engines)
10. Steel sunroof mechanism instead of plastic one (if needed)
11. Rubber grip for hood prop.
12. Taupe-colored rubber door seals. (If you have taupe interior now)
13. Net for cargo area.
14. Hood open switch (originally for intrusion alarm, but good for under hood light)

The taupe door rubber I have to see. Seen a few and own a early 01 and 02. It's a taupe on taupe color combo. And all rubber is black. So post up a pic of that when you get a chance.

Here's your photo of the ones that were originally on my 2001 PT. There's nothing like creating your own extensive library of PT photos.

It's all one piece and only taupe on the inner sides. And that is part of the same rubber but likely dyed. The outer side is black. If you look at the photo below you can seed both the inner and outer parts. The taupe part in this photo is sandwiched between the black outer part and the stone white B-pillar cover. On later models, this rubber piece is all black. On my 2001 PT, I ended up changing them all out with newer black ones to stop some air leaks caused by rips in these original taupe ones.

However, I am actually talking about the rubber that goes around all four door jambs. I have no idea of all 2001 PT's have it. It's all one piece and only taupe on the inner sides. The outer side is black. If you look at the photo below you can seed both the inner and outer parts. The taupe part in this photo is sandwiched between the black outer part and the stone white B-pillar cover.

That's pretty cool, I was hoping you had a picture of what you found! But I'm sure a cost-cutting measure later as Chrysler could just make a black molding to use for all color interiors and did not have to stock moldings in different colors, but that is unique!

Maybe behind member paywall
Here's the painted molding:

Another cool feature, and I'm sure another cost-cutting measure as Chrysler didn't have to stock this trim piece in all the exterior body colors

Anybody had the out to see if it was installed before paint. Could have been a Change in assembly procedure that prompted the Change to black. I am not busting one up to find out. Someone may have pulled one out on a painted model. I figured handy would have a picture or could get one. I'm quite familiar with the makeup of how every thing fits into these cars. Remember I'm the body & paint guy on here lol.
