Default Recommendations for Houston IA with RV experience

I would appreciate pointers to an A&P in the Houston area with RV experience.

I have an RV6 at Covey Trails (X09) that has not flown in several years. It was completed and had the Phase I flown off (TT now ~45 hours). Last CI was done by the builder in 2015 or 2016. Its been hangared and is in good cosmetic shape but is new to me so a fairly elaborate CI, by someone who has seen more than a few RVs, seems appropriate.

Anyone with good suggestions to share ? Post or PM welcome.

FYI, The CI can be performed by an A&P. IA not necessary. This might open up more options?

I wasnít aware an A&P w/o IA could sign off a CI. Thanks for the education. In this case any relevant A&P recommendation welcome. Iíll also edit the original post (if possible).

I also recommend Kirk at Total Aircraft.
Personable and knowledgeable.
Their hangar is clean and organized.
I do my own CI but use them for my transponder checks.
Go visit and be amazed.
Fly safe
