I'd deffo concentrate first on the junction box up near the front chassis rail, where the battery lead ends up after traversing the length of the car. A few years ago, mine was all crudded up and stopped my car from starting. Of course, this was only discovered after the starter motor was replaced.

MJ recently posted pictures of a junction box on the legendary 'What's in the workshop this week?' thread:

And what it looks like after a lot of hard work:
