Default Looking for local repair (Dansette)

Hello there, I recently purchased a Dansette Conquest which I'd like to restore as a project. The cosmetics are more my bag but the electrical is beyond me...so I'd like to find someone near me (near Hitchin in Hertfordshire) to sort that side of things. If anyone here is within 30 miles or so that'd be great. Many thanks for reading.

To help your potential helpers, which version of the Dansette Conquest is this as there are many? A photo will help.

If you fancy a trip to the coast, I have a proven track record of restoring Dansettes of all models, even re-stuffing the electrolytic to keep it 'original' as required.

I went to see Roger and replaced the cartridge along with a few resistors and capacitors.

The deck still requires a service, but I ran out of time. Hopefully soon Iíll return.
