Considering Viggen Purchase - What issues to look for?

Hey all, I'm looking to buy an 01 Viggen convertible, 85k miles, listed at 5900. All stock as far as I can tell. Test drove it today. The battery needed to be jumped, convertible top trunk bag needed to be tinkered with before it would retract. Bit of grease/oil build up on the motor but no visible leaks. Other than that it seemed solid. What should I look for/have a mechanic check?

Engine Sludge usually need to drop the sump - 100-300 at a mechanic) orpull the cam cover and poke around

Top hydraulic leaks ( cant get replacements and rebuilding is a bear.) Look at all cylinders and pump.

third bow (on top) micro switch..

Other than that check for codes
