Hello to all! I am new to this forum, and to vehicle repair/restoration. I have a 1993 Range Rover LWB, sitting in San Francisco, that I am interested to bring back to life. The truck has 26K original miles, but has not been used to about 10 years. Its being garaged for all this time and needs some work to be road worthy. It still on original tires, Michelins 244 (205/80R16), they show some side cracks and would need replacement, any recommendations for the tires and tire sizes?
I am looking for a good mechanic/shop in San Francisco, Bay Area, that can do the work on the RR. Appreciate any recommendation.
Thank you

Do yourself a favor and get a NEW BATTERY first thing - before you attempt to start it up or keying it on. No recommendation for mechanic, but ive done the similar thing with a rover stored for 10+ years. certain things will go bad sitting...

maybe it would be an idea to state what sort of work you need done. I think there is a lot you can do yourself.. and for the rest it is important to be more specific. if you need body repairs, it is not the same thing as electrical stuff. we do all 3 her, myself being the electrical gal but that is really an exception. in a town as big as yours ther is surely a highly specialised workshop for every job.

I agree with Annette on this one. I got to that point with mine. I said screw it and almost took it in to a british shop to get dialed. My buddy with a Classic said NO. DON'T. Learn how to do this stuff yourself so that when things go wrong, you'll know how to fix yourself. I agreed with that although mine is still running rough haha.
