Macintosh 512k Restoration

I just bought my first vintage macintosh, the macintosh 512k, and now I am making an attempt to restore it because as of now if has no video but still gives off the start-up chime. I have never restored a macintosh before and have heard there are several high voltage components inside that could kill you or at least give you a bad day. I was wondering if there are any precautions I need to take in order to remove and repair the infamous analog board safely such as what to discharge and what not to touch. If anyone could offer any guidance that would be great because I want to get this little machine back up and running.
