Bring her back to life!

I haven't started my baby for 7 years. Need some advice on how to safely start bringing her back to life. I still need a new hood too. I was thinking about one of these, it costs as much as one from a scrap yard. https://www.****************************************/1999-porsche-boxster-custom-hoods/duraflex-hood-2218929190.html

Welcome! Your link isn't working because Pelican breaks links from sites they think are competitors. I think others have posted tha those Duraflex parts don't fit particularly well, the bumpers in particular.

First off get as much of the old gas out of your tank because you'll want to start it on fresh gas. I would pull the coils and spark plugs and then squirt a little oil in each cylinder. With the plugs out turn the engine over a few times. Put the plugs back in and start the car and let it idle. If it runs rough or idles rough you might need to clean the throttle body and maf sensor. Hope this helps.
