Congrats! Not sure about how you feel about originality but these benefit greatly from moving the strap hook to improve the balance and feel. These are killer baritones, I miss mine often (sold it a while back). Try it with a bright rubber otto link.

I don't know where you are located, but if you have a GOOD local tech, you may want to go there. I say this because: 1) It will probably be cheaper where you are; 2) Your local tech may do follow up adjustments for free; 3) Local techs can be a good resource, and are more likely to help out a good customer (i.e. one who has paid them for an overhaul).

If you don't have a good tech in reasonable driving distance, then your plan sounds reasonable, but I will let the East Coast folks give you recommendations.

With as much work as it looks like that needs, I would be surprised if a tech accepted the job knowing it had to be done in April. I could also understand how someone would be uncomfortable or unwilling to receive a horn to work on that the owner hasn't personally been able to inspect. Any pro techs care to weigh in?
