Default Wanted: Inspection, Test, Transition: Mid Atlantic

Not sure where the best place to post this is, but I'm getting very close to the end of my 6A re-build project. (You can follow the project on this site by looking up N94CR)

The plane has flown before, but a nose gear collapse resulted in a prop strike and front-end damage. The damage has been repaired, the engine re-built, and it's almost ready to fly again. As far as I can tell, the only legal inspection it needs is an annual. The field has an A&P who comes in whenever someone needs an annual, but he's never done an RV before, and is reluctant since I rebuilt the engine myself.

The plane is located at DE25 (Eagle Crest) in lower Delaware. Are there any A&P IA's who service RV's in this area?

Ideally, it would be great to find someone who could also give transition training in the RV once it's checked out. Alternatively, I suppose getting checked out in another RV would qualify me to do the post-maint. test flights myself...

I estimate the plane will be flight ready in 3-4 weeks or so.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You only need an A&P, IA not required.

Best wishes for a speedy return to aviation!
