My 69 CGT finally got pulled out of storage today after getting the starter rebuilt locally. Last time it was driven was in 2011 and just for a few weeks. I hope to take it out for a quick run tomorrow after changing the oil and filter..and a grease job. All fluid levels and tires checked today and were good. We hope to strip in down and have it painted before May when we'll be putting all the cars back in storage and head out in our R/V to upstate NY till late Sept. A man from southern England is interested in it...we'll see.

I hope you are also planning to flush the brake system. Sitting that long is not good for brake fluid.

In reply to # 3904519 by MGwrench .... Sitting that long is not good for brake fluid.I would vouch it is darn bad for the hydraulic seals and hoses.
