If it sat that long I recommend you flush all fluids: oil, transmission, coolant, brakes, clutch. Just remember that the coolant has to be bleed on the top of the engine or it will trap air in the system and you will cook your engine, also need to have heater turned on high when bleeding coolent. There are threads on how to bleed system here on the forum.
The IMA battery might come back better than you would expect, but it will likely be weak.
Discharging to 0V is better than.. just about anything in between. It's going to need to be primed though - charged and discharged very slowly to wake it back up.
Thanks for the hope Eli. I am hoping for the best. But know what this AZ sun can do I am not getting my hopes up. It only took a few weeks in the sun to kill my Civic's IMA Now I only park in the shade.
Air filter, and Cabin Air filter. Just to make sure the paper isn't deteriorated or critters didn't move in.
