Tyres up to about 40 psi - no more - (or better, on stands)

Full tank prevents moisture - add fuel stabiliser

Change oil to remove moisture in old oil - min. starts after that

New style of trickle charger far better than occasional starting - will only charge when needed and not overcharge (top up battery also)

Make sure coolant has been changed in the last 2-3 yrs to prevent corrosion (and freeze up in your location?)

If you do start the car, make sure it runs for at least 15 min to get fully hot (long idling is bad)

Clean and treat leather

Dryer sheets or dessicant container will keep moisture down in cabin

If mice are a possibility, cover all openings (leave a list for uncovering openings!!!)
