Edit: most recent:
-thermostat housing was leaking bigtime. took it off and apart, only to realize it has been running with no thermostat! i put new gasket maker also on the block, flipped the O-ring around, and we're back in action.

-since everything else seems to be in tact at the moment, i did the door trims with a nice blue patterned material to match all the interior paint and outside most of the car
