SL1210 tonearm balancing and mods question

I just installed a Denon DL301 cart onto a stock SL1210.

The tonearm will float with the counterwight fully forward, so I balanced two 1 cent coins to the headshell, giving a total weight of 17.5grams (cart+hshell+wires+coins), and set the counterweight to 2.

 

Does this make sense? What's the best practice?

Also, more general upgrade question, I know KABUSA is the go to source for Technics upgrades, but, what mods are the ones to start with? I've upgraded the feet, added an audiophile mat and use a clamp. Would you recommend upgraded RCA's next, or, tonearm rewire, or, fluid damper...what's best bang for buck?

 

Thanks

The best place to get quick advise regarding the Technics

SL1210 turntable would be the Vinyl Engine forum.
