156 1.8 ts

Wave 156 help

i've just got a 1.8 ts but its been stood for at least 4 years, got it from the next door neighbour after years of moaning for him to sell it, he had an indie out to it about 3 months ago and says it only needs both track rod ends, a battery, and new disks and pads all round,
what else should i do to get it back on the road????

Timing belt (kit), for starters. They have a 3-year lifespan. Probably not a good idea to try to start it until it's done, tbh...

Yep, CAMBELT KIT, AUXBELT and idler/tensioner, water pump (check the radiator for green copper rot too), full service and tyres if she hasn't moved in all that time.
