Prepping Herman for eventual sale

My 2006 2LT has been a great little car, but I'm a big guy, and getting a little stiffer with age, so I'm gonna have to find something with a more upright seating position, and with enough windshield that I don't have to bend my neck over to see the traffic lights.
At 176k miles, he's still a scrapper and hits the road solid (to borrow a phrase I'd heard recently), though I think I'll do a few things to sweeten him up a bit for a prospective buyer.
I'm not putting this in the marketplace forum yet, as I'll need to wait until this Summer to sell, just wondering what buyers in this area will notice most about a potential used HHR purchase (Alabama).
Everything works, recent tires, regular maintenance, and I plan to do a deep clean of the inside and outside (wash, clay, wax) as well as installation of a new windshield (this one looks like a rand mcnally map) and new front brakes (ACDelco rotors and pads).
Figure that'd be enough? I think it's more than most people will put into a $4000 car, but I think this little guy will shine up nice. I'll post it for sale on this forum before he hits craigslist, as I think a forum member would be more likely to appreciate my little car's Hermanity.

I'm probably not going to try real hard to sell Herman. I've replaced the brake pedal pad, and have the brake parts (rotors and pads) for the front waiting for me to get off my lazy posterior.
Last week, I picked up an '04 Z71 Suburban. While I can get better mpg out of it than some, it's still a bit thirsty compared to li'l Herman. So, on days when my neck isn't so stiff, I'll still be driving the HHR to work, unless someone offers enough cash.
