Thanks

Pics first

Then change all the fluids. Prepare to change a few seals that may have dried out. Really just have to drive and see what leaks. Being in a garage out of the sun may help prevent a lot of the normal setting issues

Yep Pics is coming . I'll take it with my new phone Nokia 1020 when I receive it .

And I'll change all the fluids ( engine, transmission, differential, coolant, break oil )+ spark plugs +fuel filter, air filter.
What else?

With a gas engine I would simply change the fluids like mentioned and drive it.
