Spider for the mongol rally

I'm planning on taking my spider on the mongol rally next year. Need suggestions on mods to make it more off road capable =D
I'm thinking 15" steel rims (from 156) with high profile van tyres like 195/70R15C if there's room enough, should be about 3.5% bigger than original.
Skid plates under engine and tank, anywhere else? And is there any place to get prefabricated plates, I know there is one for the 156, maybe it can fit?
Are there any aftermarket springs/shocks to make it ride higher?
Would also like to find a luggage rack to put on the boot lid.

Looking for any suggestions on what to modify in order to handle hot temperatures and bad/no roads.

Sounds bonkers. All I can contribute to this thread is that the tank is already well protected. It's not directly accessible from underneath without removing subframe, exhaust and steel shield.
Apart from that good luck!

Yep, fits the concept of driving a really unsuitable vehicle, just need to get it approved by the organisers. The official engine size limit is 1.2 litres, I hope lack of ground clearance and luggage space will justify .8 litres extra. Just had a look under the back end, looks like the subframe is exposed down at the lower suspension arm bushing, I'll see about if it's possible to protect it somehow...
