Hi, i will be storing the car in my un- heated garage. Im going to detail it this weekend then run some fuel stabilizer through the car and un hook the positve to the battery or i could leave the battery on, and put it on a tender (ctek 3300) then cover it. Anything i have missed.

I'd pull the battery and clean/treat the battery tray area. The 114's are notorious for rusting there. Leave the battery out. Get yourself a plastic battery box to store the battery. Most R.V./ boat supply stores have them.

Give the front and rear windscreen seals a good coating of a silicone preservative. Same for the trunk seal.

Put some extra air in the tyres, watch out for mice and other critters getting into the car of engine bay/air intake.

Put the car away warm (after an extended drive), so that there is no moisture in the oil.
