It's a great place for it. I had a 1983 Aspencade that sat in a shed from 1999-2007.

Personally, I am VERY interested in hearing your story, as I have at least one GL1000 which is in need of the same treatment. Please share!!

Then begin looking for little nits here and there.

From what I can see of the panels, there does not seem to be any scratches on them.

A little TLC, er uh, make that a lot of TLC and you have a winner.
