Somebody posted this on a different forum..
Drained the gas tank and lines, then ran it until it died.
Put it on jack stands so the tires are off the ground and springs hang.
Took out the battery.
Loosened the belts.
Drained all the water out, not just the radiator, but the block and heater core.
Filled the engine with oil. Pulled the spark plugs and filled the cylinders. Plugged the dip stick tube so I could fill it all the way. I was trying to keep the seals and gaskets from drying out, besides stopping rust.
Put big signs on it reminding myself it was FULL of oil.
Plugged the intake and exhaust.
Put moth balls all over, suppose to stop mice. Sprinkled ground Jalapeno peppers around to help ward off the mice.
Lifted the wiper arms on little blocks of foam, so the wipers were off the windshield.
Smeared grease and oiled everything I could think of, hinges, door locks, seat sliders,...
