Default Condition Inspection Recommendation

Does anyone know of a reputable shop in the southeast/south central for a RV7A condition inspection? The big names are all booked up into the summer. I particularly want to zero in on the nose wheel structure and the associated service bulletins.

Thanks

Have you tried https://baselegaviation.com/ or https://saintaviation.com/?

They are the two shops that come to mind in the Southeast.

RocketBob in Indiana may also be able to help.

Base Leg just completed the condition inspection on my 7A. I can't say enough good things about Vic and Nic Syracuse. Communication with them was great and so is there workmanship.

Highly recommended!
