where to get your bus serviced

i want to have R1 all tuned up. transmission fluid flushed, grease all points, put 4 tires on, check everything. get it ready for the open road, in NH does any one recommend a good diesel mechanic? or how to find a trusted one?
i will do all myself the stuff i can, just changed oil other day and swapped out ICP sensor, but want pro eyes on it.
check out my build pics

i've taken my bus to a few different mechanics. i havent been happy with any that i 've tried.

im not sure if its the bus or me. last mechanic complained a lot how hard access was to the engine. I have a flat nose FE bus. none have been happy to see me or the bus, until i come and pay them. then they crack a smile.

i pay $80/hour for the mechanics time.

i try to do as much as i can, @$80/hour an oil change is close to $1000.
