Recommend that you start with the drive train, tires, and brakes. I.e. Things that make it go and things that make it stop. Then exterior lights (head, tail, turn, stop, flashers), wipers, and other things that make it street legal.
Everything else can be fixed at your leisure if necessary, but those things need to be working before you even move it, unless you have it towed home.
My priority list for this kind of project is always
going to be:
1 - make it safe;
2 - make it comfortable;
3 - make it uniquely yours.
