I'm about to start an MGB GT which hasn't been started for five years - what can I do to prevent damage?

Sometime this week I will collecting (by trailer) an MGB GT. The car has been subjected to a near total renovation including a new engine, however this was five years ago and it hasn't been started since. What should I do before I start and drive it to prevent damage to the car?

Don't do anything. Get a competent MG specialist to recommission it.
