Default Pats that will fit in a suitcase

So it looks like while I am in Olympia, Washington, I have access to a silver parts car.

I am wondering what parts I should get, that I can fit into an (additional) suitcase to take back to Australia. (No parts cars available in Australia - none.)
An additional suitcase can be taken at no freight charge.

My car at home is also silver.

I am thinking interior trim pieces (like plastic interior door sill trim piece, rear hatch interior trim piece). Most dash pieces won't fit due to my car being RHD.

Any good suggestions?

I already have a spare HV battery, plus on the parts car it has already gone.

I'm going to add axles and motor mounts to your list. I don't think there are any aftermarket options for either and they'll both eventually go.

Seat covers, floor mats, window switches, I think the transmission is tiny enough for a full sized suitcase, egr valve, water pump, belt tensioner, coil packs, map sensor, maf sensor, throttle body, pcm, cataltyic converters, oil pan if room, O2 sensors,

Seat covers. Rear skirts. Trunk latch mechanism. Power window switch, if it's the same.

Is the trunk latch mechanism worth taking with it having such a high failure rate? I would think it would be better to just buy Mudder's part when his eventually fails.

Maybe take the best rim so you have a spare if you are forced into a curb or something.

With the amount of sun fading in Australia I would say to inventory your interior for fading then see what you can bring back. Washington has very little sun fading.

Cluster, seat covers, shifter boot, climate control, bumper temp sensor, cabin blower motor, ecm/mcm/bcm, window switches, all the interior clips you can get.

Thanks for the suggestions. Climate control panel doesn't fit, and I don't run any of the standard engine management or sensors. But keep them coming - some (like the engine mounts) that I'd not thought of.
