Wyoming repair shop?

Hello All....I came looking for a trusted or trustworthy repair shop. To my surprise I did not see anything listed. I currently own a 91 300SE ( rescued it is more apt. ). I happen to be an ASE certified mechanic with some MB experience.
The point is this: after repairing the head gasket and various other items the previous owner could-not or would-not fix I am left with some AC problems. I admit when it comes to my new baby I need help fixing the system.
The compressor seems to run at all times and engine speeds. This also seems to be effecting the idle performance. So I could use some serious help fixing this problem.
Does anyone know of a repair shop anywhere in Wyoming? Or anyone with some experience in this area would be great!!

Dealership A/C repair can run to $4-5000 if the under dash evaporator also has to replaced (requires complete removal of dash), often exceeding the value of the car.
I assume as a certified mechanic, you are used to a hands on approach.
I recommend you post in the W126 section. The 'welcome....' announcement on top has the info on how to search the W126 archive, and the link to a free factory service manual.
You'll find many detailed DIY threads re the issue.
Cheers

No one still? I went to Auto Electric of Cheyenne two years ago to evacuate the A/C system of R134 so I could replace it with a propane-based refrigerant (es-refrigerants.com). I'd love to see anything else here. Are you anywhere near here, WyoBob?
