thats completely up to you, do it the way you want it, not the way other people want it.

start off with some dice :D

I'd start by learning to service it yourself if you don't know how already.

Then a bloomin good clean.

Then think about the things you don't like and how you'd like to change them.

You could try the fairly cheap but effective "first" mods such as de-oranging, meshing the front grille and lower grille. Im planning to de-orange at the start of the summer, cant wait till its done as i hate the orange in the headlights! Fitted some clear side repeater's today, which had make a sublte improvement!
And of course, a damn good clean inside and out!

I haven't got round to doing much on my bubble, but the first two on my list are minor ones which only I will really notice.

I'm gonna do the one touch down passenger window detailed here, as it will be really useful for me - http://forums.mg-rover.org/showthread.php?t=92541

I'm also gonna do the push button start, mainly 'cause I'm really immature -

And those two mods are really cheap. I can't really afford a set of alloys, but I can afford £2 for a button and a small length of wire.
