Include a spare bypass hose. The little connection between the water pump and the thermo housing. Hiding nicely away it gets forgotten. It can be replaced without dismantling too much though.

A small tarp might come in handy when you need to get under the car and to put your nuts and bolts on. A can of stop leak, cable ties and spare fuses. But that's a lot for only 2 days off-road.

About 4 meters of fencing wire, great for holding up an exhaust, has many uses, a tub of grease, WD40, baby wipers(great for cleaning), Air compressor(12V), Tyre gauge, Gloves, shovel, Axe. LED Lights, Lighter, Plenty of water.
I have most of these things in a tub ready to throw in the back for when a day trip through the scrub is on the cards. Plus all the gear you've mentioned already.

have a great time.

A satellite phone so you can ring your mechanic for help when the one thing you didn't bring is the one thing you need!
