Default Taking out of long storage

I am reviving '03 Ion from 3 year storage, and looking for advice and tips on the best procedure. Never stored one this long so definitely out of my comfort zone. Thanks in advance.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Did you prep the car for long tem storage or just parked it and left it that way?

Before you do anything to this car, answer fdryer's question in post #2. Without that answer any response for a recommendation is little better than making a guess.

What would you consider prep for storing a car? Draining most of the fuel and adding a stabilizer with a fresh oil change?
