    Default Looking for a mechanic near Lansing Michigan for a pre-buy

    I am looking at a 1959 PA-22/20 for sale and would like to find an honest shop that is very familiar with them for a thorough prebuy. Preferably, near Lansing Michigan, but not necessarily. Southwest Michigan would be second preference.
    The aircraft is currently in annual, but will be due in August so I'm also thinking of turning the prebuy into an annual. It has sat in a hangar since it was flown back from the last annual in August 2020.
    The location of the shop doing the work is less important to me than the familiarity, knowledge, thoroughness, and honesty of the shop doing the work, location is preferential only for convenience.
    Any suggestions or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

    I am sorry, just checked with my mechanic and he isn’t taking on more work now. He had no recommendations so I will ask at airport this week. I wish you the best. Brian, 58 pa 22/20 at krnp

    Send Gilbert a message or someone else here that knows them well and offer to pay his Clipper gas bill and a night at the Grand hotel on Mackinac Island, and maybe he would stop on the way and look at the plane for you.
