just bought a stock 1992 fox gt convertible it has 180k miles on motor everything is stock besides bbk intake and bbk short headers. i drove it 200 miles back to my house it didnt overheat just ran a little hot not concerning enough to pull over. a lot of stuff under the hood looks worn out what are the things i should do to update the fox to keep it running good has a rough idle not to bad. my plan is to freshen up the older stuff with new parts and just add rear gears and maybe electric fans. any advice would help thank you. goals is to restore under hood and suspension

First start with the basics, change fluids and filters, plugs , wires etc.
From your pics looks like to forward most line going to your EGR is going to start
leaking if it hasn't done so already.
Get a cheap code reader to see if the ecu is throwing any codes.

Like steel1 mentioned, tune up, fluids, belts, hoses and vacuum lines, that kind of stuff, no need for the electric fan stuff, I'd find a stock air box or get a pipe that puts that air filter inside the fender and out of the engine compartment. Then enjoy the ride.
