comment What material should I look for in an oil drain plug gasket?
The job of a washer that doesn't deform is just to spread load out over the workpiece. I don't know if that's necessary, and in any case it would only happen if the washer's outer diameter is larger than the plug's. Out of curiosity, what metal is the current washer?

comment AC Recharge- What did I do wrong?
This answer is not particularly useful given that the OP acknowledged in the question that DIY A/C service is generally fault-prone. The question asks specifically what the fault might be in this case.

comment How do you anticipate battery failure in advance?
It's also possible to load test the battery using the starter motor and a decent multimeter, which is a more general-purpose tool. If the battery voltage drops below (IIRC) 9.6 while cranking, it fails the load test.

comment A better way to support the camera
If you're willing to stick mounting material like Velcro semi-permanently to the dashboard, there's also sugru!
