Default no start

Got any 87 na. shes been in storage all winter and now that its been getting nice ive decided to start working on her again for the fun summer months. I went to start but got nothing the battery had died. so i decided to jump her with my truck and she started right up. took the battery home hooked up to a charger overnite hooked it back up she start just fine. I than replaced my throttle body and tps (tps went out last year got used body and tps on ebay) bought a few new hoses ( they broke off from the cold while working on it). once put back together (including my deck and subs/amps) started her again to make sure everything was ok and it was. went back 2 weeks ago to start her again i got nothing my subs and amp kicked on and the stereo sounded great but didnt get the sound i wanted my baby purrin. I just replaced starter two months before storing her any ideas why she wont start?
i did get her going by push starting her by the way but didnt want to drive just in case

it just makes a clicking noise( im pretty sure its from the ecu sending a signal to the starter) other than that nothing. everything else works just fine though just wont start

If its no crank just a click, then its the starter relay. Its under the passenger side kick panel which is where the click is coming from. Its a pretty common problem.
