I want to restart my car,the last time it was used was back in September,do i just go for it,or should i remove plugs, build up oil pressure + any other thing i should be aware of.Will there still be oil on cylinder bores after 5 months.

I'd have said just go for it 4 months or so should be ok

Yep, go for it, make sure you get oil pressure, let it idle for a few minutes to sort itself out, and bobs your uncle.

If your battery is up to the job disconnect the coil lead and spin it over until you see oil pressure. Then reconnect and off you go

maybe have a reserve battery on hand too
