Hello and welcome.
Nice car Paul, a friend of mine has the same model with a factory fitted body kit.
If it hasn't been run for 10 years I'd remove the spark plugs for a start put some light oil down the bores and if possible try a turn the engine by hand first.
There are so many things to consider when waking up an engine from a long slumber, but I am sure someone will be along with more advice for you.

make sure all fluids are at right level, get some wires across the battery to get it started and then go from there with full service etc. If you cn get it up make sire the brakes are not binding, if they are they might release with a 5 m drive. Take it nie and steady and enjoy the project, i am envious

Beautiful car. I had a W126 560SEL a few years ago which I wish I hadn't sold. The C126 SEC was what I really wanted though.

I'm only down the road from you so it will be nice to see another C126 on the road!

Matt.

Hi Tony. Welcome!! Do you still need to find a mechanic to help you bring the SEC back to life?
