I purchased my 1978 MGB in December 2014.
She already had the chrome bumper package and wire wheels installed by the previous owner. I added a Robert Grant front valance.
One month after purchase, I had the engine rebuilt and new clutch installed by 5R Restorations (the odometer currently reads 88,366, when I had the engine rebuilt, it read 78,739 and is believed to be actual) she currently has 9,630 miles on her.
I then proceeded to replace all suspension bushings; replaced the complete exhaust (chrome), installed heat-shield under exhaust, added a resonator to dampen road noise; high torque starter, gel battery; installed oil cooler; replaced the top, replaced all of the bushings, installed a start button for ignition; replaced front and rear brakes (new pads, seals, chrome lines and springs).
Bluetooth radio; amplifier and speaker box for premium sound.
