Looking for a SW/central shop with 337 experience

Anyone know of a good skymaster shop within a few hundred miles of Santa Fe, NM?

I've used Stuart at Bode at KAEG ( Double Eagle) to work on my skymaster when visiting family in Abq.

I also really like Russell at Planewerks in NC as true Skymaster guru...long way, but worth it.

What level of work at ABQ? Annuals, or just fixing squawks?

Crossing the country for an annual is a multi-day time suck (and a multi-thousand dollar expense, even before the annual starts.)

Work in Abq has always been repair or upgrade, not annual. But one repair was replacing 3 jugs, and r&r of fuel pump and turbo system...over several days. Stuart had to follow corp direction of Bode Aviation, but always fair and good communication.

On traveling xc for annuals - I'd rather travel a distance and drop off plane with someone i trust. I have IAs in NC, FL, and elsewhere that do annuals for me...i just figure logistics around it. If you're not doing upgrades at annual time (which I usually do) and been keeping your plane fixed throughout year, annual shouldn't be long or cumbersome event. Anyway, you asked for opinions - those are mine.
