Center console lids: the plastic underneath and the upholstered cover.
Headlights and turn signal housing assemblies. The plastic becomes super brittle over time and if you remove one or the other, you're sure to break those mounting tabs.
If you really want to be radical, develop customizations that nobody else offers like ... a rooftop mounted, encased solar panel battery maintainer with all hardware and wiring (ready to bolt on)
Rear hatch window hinges. For second generation I believe there are 2 types. But man, those things get stripped easily
If you can find them, mounting hardware for aftermarket accessories (i.e. brush guards) would sell well, as they're literally impossible to find.
Not sure if I missed it or not, but I've been looking for front seat upholstery and foam without any luck at all. Surely these would be a huge seller, especially in the south where heat destroys all the leather seats I've seen in all the 2nd gens now. Maybe leather or vinyl choice??
