100,000 mile tune-up

I just bought this car last week, what else should I do??
so far:
oil and filter
tranny fluid
spark plugs
dist. cap
rotor
fuel filter (original was still in there!!)
air filter
sea-foam the carbon out of the cylinders
I am also planning on changing all the belts soon, there are 3 right - serp. belt, v-belt and the timing belt??
Anything else I am missing??
Thanks

dont forget plug wires
new dimensions has them for the best price and plug wires are plugs.
i would also throw in a new low temp thermostat and fan switch (or at least thats what i did)

oh yeah-I forgot to mention I did clean the throttle body, boy was it dirty!!
brake fluid is good, I am gonna wait on the coolant in case I decide to replace the water pump when i do the timing belt.
as far as plug wires, thats was gonna be my next question-which are the best to buy-where do I get New Dimension plug wires??
thanks a lot!!

How much? http://www.alamomotorsports.com sells Magnecore KV 8.5mm wires for $45, they are probably the best wire around and you can't beat that price.
When you do the Belt change don't forget a new tensioner for the TB and the three seals in the front of the engine as well (cam, int. shaft, and Crank). And a waterpump.

At 100K I'd also repack rear wheel bearings....and change brake shoes/check rear wheel cylinders if you've got rear drums. Get new grease seals and adjust bearings per Bentley manual...tapered roller bearings don't take well to being set up too tight!
