Seattle area Cessna Cardinal mechanic
I live a bit north of Seattle. I recently bought my first airplane and I'm looking for a good shop. I bought it in California and used a local shop to pre-buy. It's a 1972 Cessna Cardinal 177RG. The plane is in good condition overall. It flies terrific, but I have six things I want to address. 1) I'm not able to fly at night right now because my nav lights aren't working. When I turn on the nav lights, the beacon breaker pops. 2) While my primary Nav/Comm is really solid, my secondary is pretty poor--perhaps antenna, wiring, the radio itself, resonance noise from the panel... 3) The engine has pretty good compression but still seems a bit anemic, both on takeoff and at cruise. 4) I want to add shoulder harnesses for the front. 5) I lack push-to-talk for the co-pilot. 6) My doors may need to have the hinges or the latching mechanisms adjusted because they can be a bear to close. A bit of work overall for an otherwise solid plane. Any recommendations on a shop between Seattle and Bellingham that would be really strong with older Cessnas?
