Default Mechanic Recommendations for RV7 New Owner in SoCal

Looking for recommendations for mechanic(s) in the Los Angeles area. Bought an RV-7 in NH and have thoroughly enjoyed it thus far, but could use some help practicing basic maintenance and soon doing some upgrades in both the short and long term. Upgrades include looking at flight controls (some higher longitudinal stick forces in flight, no binding), asymmetric tailwheel control forces, installing an avionics fan, troubleshooting an aux input, upgrading to GAMI injectors, etc. etc. Aircraft is kept at SNA.

The information that I post is just that; information and my own personal experiences. You need to weigh out the pros and cons and make up your own mind/decisions. The pictures posted may not show the final stage or configuration. Build at your own risk. Further more, these are my opinions and not those of Van's Aircraft.
