Nitrogen Shock Recharge in DC Area?

So I've tried welding supply, scuba shops, and tire shops, no one in NoVA will recharge a Fox remote reservoir shock. This is after Fox recommended this option versus sending the shock back to them.

Anyone in the DC area know of a definite place to get this done?

Called around everywhere and Iron Pig Offroad in Fredericksburg, VA can do it. They are about 20 miles south.

So did they charge your shocks? They told me that they don't rebuild them and knew of nobody locally that would.

Yep, they did the recharge. Call Fox or whatever you manufacturer is. Fox keeps a list of rebuilders.

I'll do that! I loved the guy that rebuilt my last set, but he was in CA and shipping back and forth was a killer. Did you rebuild or just recharge?

I bashed the schrader valve off one of my shocks, so I just need a recharge.
