Fill the tank, add stabilizer, change oil, disconnect battery, bump up tire pressure, and put a box of baking soda inside the car, under the hood, in the trunk, and under the car to soak up moisture.
I do a few things on here that people tell me i'm nuts for but haven't had a problem with for 16 years.
1. Wipe down rotors with wd-40 and a rag. The surface looks just like it did before i put it away. Didn't do it one year and i had a lot of surface rust. Wiped it off and found slight pitting. Last time i made that mistake.
2. Take the weight off the suspension. Ever see a car with leaky or frozen shocks after sitting for months? Bushings can conform to a certain shape too. When you buy springs, shocks, bushings, etc., they sit on the shelf with out being weighted. It does no damage. Would you buy new suspension products that had 3700lbs sitting on them for months? Didn't think so.
Go ahead guys flame away.
<-- Guess which ones quicker?.....Nope! Not even close.
