I like to white lithium moving parts (door hinges, locks, regulators, sunroof tracks). Run the AC for 15 minutes before you put it away (circulates refrigirant which has a conditioner in it).

Make sure whatever you put the wheels on is wide enough to go past the edges of the tires (dont put it on 2X4)

Put fuel stabilizer in (not really necessary since you're not storing for that long, but at like 4$ a bottle, i'd do it).

Leave the hood unlatched (i've had the cable break on me when pulling it out of storage, which is worse when you store your car 500km away from home)

that's it, try not to drool over it too much when its cold. Also, dont set a date when you're pulling it out.

Call your insurance co and put it on fire & theft. If you want to save some $, call your homeowners insurance company, see if they'll insure it for fire and theft (if they do it will be much cheaper than automotive insurance)

We store vehicles at our shop over the winter every year, and instead of removing the wheels and storing them seperatly we will actually drive the cars up onto 4 chunks of ceiling/foundation insulation (you know the blue super dense styrofoam?). That will keep your tires from sucking up moisture and flat spotting.
