Default Spring Cleaning (For PT Parts)

This may have come up in other posts, but I'd like to ask and have a thread with all of the information centralized.

It's getting to be spring and around this time as part of spring cleanings, I like to disassemble as much of the pt's engine and clean all of the little parts to keep the cruiser running as smooth as possible. IMO this is the best performance boost for my PT and the best part is it requires absolutely no money. Before I go in there I like to come up with a list of parts I'm going to clean. As I'm not a huge car guy, I clean the easiest places and parts to reach. My list is:

Air Intake Temp Sensor
Ingnition Block Terminals
Spark Plugs (respace)
Throttle body
Air Intake Ports
All Caps and Seals
Battery Clamps & Terminals
PCV Valve Ports

A lot of these places are routine maintenance points and should be cleaned regularly. Do you have any places on your PT you see that need regular cleaning that aren't on this list? If so lets get a list going.

Here's to a long life and a happy one.
A quick death and an easy one.
A pretty girl and an honest one.
A cold beer and another one!
