Atlanta Mechanic and/or Defender Aficionado Needed

Merry Christmas D90.

I am reaching out the boards in search of the best someone in the Atlanta area who can thoroughly look / inspect a Defender for me. It has a good amount of miles on the original engine so I'd like to see a compression test, ensure the frame is straight, check the usual suspects, basically ensure it is mechanically and physically in good condition, and check any other recommendations this board suggest done.

Any volunteers or nominations?

Thank you all.

I've only bought parts from them but I'm sure you could pay Urban Land Cruisers to do a very thorough pre-purchase inspection.

When I bought my first coiler in 2000 I used http://www.road-britannia.com/ for a pre-purchace inspection. I was happy with them.
I've never used anyone for actual service work, so can't speak to that.
