Absolutely :) Need to check on those engine mounts, get the battery fixed in position and do a full oil change. 

I've heard disconnecting the ABS is also recommended!! :)

Yes, abs cut off switch for the left front is advised.

Next to a gearbox breather pipe.

Check if you have the front tow eye, and if it actually fits (entry can get rusted)
Also advised to get a rear end tow eye mounted.

Fresh decent brake fluid strongly advised. Anything from the second section:

Then decent pads like rs14 or rc5+. If you are an aggressive driver, then use rc6.
 

Then once you get addicted, we will be happy to squeeze more investments out of you to take it to the next level.

Can you do an executive summary?  Lost interest before anything happened.

Please check your fuel lines in the engine bay.

They should be secured to the mount with fixings.

Often the fixings become brittle and snap with age, which leaves the joint prone to coming apart creating a fire risk.
