Post 87 560 SL - Modernize or not?

Just got this car and thinking about modernizing it a little such as radio/navigation system, wheels, new dash, any hints or suggestions as how and who to talk to about this?

Nav radio is easy enough, anything else that requires cutting will probably devalue the car and make it more difficult to sel.

With best regards

Welcome to the Forum. I would do a Nav/Stereo and some nice rims, but that would be it.
