A couple fixes on problem areas

The vinyl cab trim on my 2401WS was brittle and had shrunken, pulling from the corners and misaligning the paint on them. Also the caulk on the aluminum trim where the vinyl fits had done the same, leaving unsightly cracks in the painted area.
I ordered some solid black vinyl trim and got some 1/4" black pinstripe. The vinyl was installed with two aluminum screws in the arcs to prevent it from pulling out.
After cleaning the caulk and loose paint at the side edge of the track, I used the pinstripe to cover the gap.
Both vinyl and pinstripe can be had in various colors to match most paint schemes.
I also tired of things falling off the top shelf above the sink, so I stretched a bungee across between two hook screws. Stuff stays up there now.

The "little things that drive you crazy mods and fixes". Kind of went through similar fixes for dishes in the overhead cabinets so it didn't drive us crazy going down the road. Also, found that sticking a hand towel, or dishtowel between the stove glass cover and burner also reduces a lot rattling you hear going down the road.

Regarding the glass stove cover, I used Velcro in 2 spots on each side of the stove to eliminate vibration noise: on the front corners of the cover and at the middle hinge points where it contacts the stove frame.
I still throw a towel in there to dampen the rattling of individual burners.
