Default need a machine shop near Alabma

After 30 years in the military my wife and I retired around Tuscaloosa AL and we began the restoration of our 31 Canadian built Tudor, I have completed most of the chassis work but need a good engine/machine shop. I have to get some line boring done on relatively good babbitt. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I will be going to Tucker Georgia swap meet next weekend. Thank You

A friend of mine from here in Panama City, FL, took the engine from his 30 Coupe to Carden last month. He was very impressed.
