Default Recommendations on repair shop?

I've run across a cosmetically near-mint condition 4th-gen Madison that has signs of some cap problems and possibly a couple of other issues. While I haven't operated on the CB band for years, this radio is just too nice to leave powered off. It deserves to be restored and aligned and switched on! Any recommendations on trusted radio repair shops?

I've tried to contact Mike's Radio Repair but have heard nothing, so I'm assuming he is either up to his ears in work or no longer taking new business. If you are familiar with any of Mike's YouTube videos, I am looking for that caliber of service.

First Class Radio, Inc., in the St. Louis area, is another shop I've run across. I just don't know anything about them.

Thanks in advance.

Len

Most major truck stops have a CB repair shop near by or they can tell you who does
