The backup

Since i'm really behind on Senor Barney.  I decided to make use of a friends car as backup.  It'll be a corolla just a bit different from what use.  But as long as it's a car and it drives who cares.  Since it hasn't driven in about 2 years.  I was thinking it was going to require just a small amount of maintenance, probably just a bunch of fluid changes. Actually, I believe the last time it drove was at the AE86 Grip Day in 2008 a bit ironic.
Upon arrival, I began going through a visual inspection to if there's any issue that need to be done. Unfortunately, there's a bit more than I was expecting.

 Battery hold down no up to snuff, I wonder how it got past tech at the last event?

Rear link bolt.  Looks like I may have to go through and torque every single bolt so something like this doesn't happen on track.

Broken header pipe.  It was broke previously before and looks like it broke again.

Ya know vacuum caps are pretty darn cheap now a days. I'll need to go find some.

There's probably more, but that's all I found for now.  I wonder if this was a good idea?
