HI I would like to find someone who can test a large mirror in the Los Angeles area. I am willing to drive this thing all over So Cal to get it tested.

 

Any suggestions would be very appreciated.

I'll second this recommendation. He re-figured and coated my 20" mirror a few years ago. Great guy and lives in the boonies, so the drive will be scenic.

Thanks Guys!  So I reached out to Terry and he was nice enough to squeeze me in. He re-coated my 29" mirror. Other than being a true pro he is also one of the coolest people I have ever met.

Ill have photos soon.
