You should have a Clymers manual for sure and a set of the Paul Sayegh maintenance DVD's will help you get it back together correctly.
Definitely upgrade the headlights to HID. If you are a flasher i.e. you use high beams to gain the attention of cagers around you then upgrade only the low beam, else upgrade both high and low beams. http://www.ddmtuning.com

DO NOT POST A THREAD ASKING WHICH BRANDS OF OIL OR FILTERS TO USE!!!! You will just cause a riot or something close to it. Put these types of questions in the category of 'Never try to teach a pig to sing. It will frustrate you and annoy the pig'. Search the forum for answers to these questions.
If she's running good I would wait 'till after dark and ride her like the dickens. A totally nekkid LT would be kind of fun to ride as long as the temps aren't too low.

Have fun, go slow on the rebuild and be safe!
