Tools needed for certain jobs 190D

I am going to try to finish the mechanic work on my 190D when the semester is over so I can have the car on campus next semester. I have quite a few jobs to do, so I'll list them here. Basically, I want to know if there are any special tools I'm not think of.

IP delivery valve resealing (issue had to pop up AFTER I did the glow plugs and injectors even when service records indicate they had been done in the past 5 years)
Engine mounts (driver's side is shot, both are original)
Transmission mount (completely shot)
Automatic transmission shifter bushings (loose shifter)
Front control arm bushings (original and shot)
Idler arm bushings (not sure on condition but likely original like everything else was in suspension)
Front anti-roll bar bushings (original and shot)
HVAC control unit wiring harness repair and system diagnosis (broken ground wire plus other possible issues)
Rust neutralization and patching (a few holes that were bondoed over as it was a Virginia car, not structural rust so cleaning and patching with fiberglass)
Exhaust hangers
Coolant flush and replacement with correct coolant (did it with universal and tap water a while back when I didn't know any better)
Possible water pump replacement ( recently the temp sometimes goes into the 90s while car had been always running at 85 before, even in the summer)

I already have the engine mounts, transmission mount, idler arm bushings, front control arm bushings, exhaust hangers, and refurbished HVAC unit.

I need to order (this list is more so for me) delivery valve seals and crush washers, intake manifold gasket, shifter bushings, roll bar bushings, coolant tank cap, radiator drain plug, shifter bushing, coolant, heater control valve (0008305784), hood strut, POR-15 or similar rust neutralizing paint, fiberglass patching, possibly the water pump.

I know I need a spring compressor for the control arms and I plan to have a shop press the bushings as I have no access to a bushing press.

I have the delivery valve socket for the IP and I know I need to order a 14mm injector line wrench to make it easier to get those off.

I also need a vacuum tester.

Am I forgetting anything? Also, any special tips on these jobs or other parts I should replace while doing these jobs?

Current: 80 300SD OM606 project, 83 300D 5-speed project, 88 Yugo GVX, 90 300D OM603 swap, 90 Lexus LS400, 91 F150 4.6 4v swap, 93 190E Sportline LE 3.0L swap, 93 190E Sportline LE Megasquirt, 02 C320 wagon, 03 Sprinter, 06 E500 4Matic wagon.

The special shifter bushing pliers will allow you to keep MOST of your hair firmly imbedded still in your scalp.
