Get Ready For Spring

My E has been in heated storage (safe from a NY winter) since late October -- and now I'm itching to get it on the road (probably in mid-March). I changed the oil before storage and used a fuel additive to keep the fuel from gumming up. There's also a trickle charger on the battery. Any suggestions for the first time I start it up (like give the engine a few turns before seriously going for a full start)?

You might bleed the brakes to get contaminants out. DOT3 and 4 do collect moisture. If synthetic, you won't have to bleed as much. Same for hydralic clutch. Check rubber parts and wiring for mouse chewings as they love heated garages. We used to start up winterized Jags and shoot mice out the tailpipes.
